The Editors have been the renowned rock band of this decade but their new album judging by the debut single is more of an electronic affair. It won’t come to many as a surprise as many acts have tried to jump on the electronic band wagon which has seen the likes of La Roux dominate the charts.
The Editors showcase there synth bashing skills in Papillion which is French for butterfly. Despite this new approach the distinctive sound of previous Editors albums isn’t lost and lead singer Tom’s vocals continue to provide that hallmark associated with the boys from Stafford.
The video to Papillion features a parkour runner exhibiting his running skills. It was given a much publicised launch on the new online Sony Video service on the PS3 named Vidzone.
The new album titled In This Light and On This Evening was released in October 09.
