Royal Blood have unveiled details about the release of their third album, Typhoons, alongside releasing the title track from the record, which was premiered as Annie Mac’s “Hottest Record” last night.
After two UK #1 albums, 2 million album sales and an array of international acclaim, you might’ve thought you knew what to expect from Royal Blood. Those preconceptions were shattered when they released ‘Trouble’s Coming’ last summer.
Hitting a melting pot of fiery rock riﬀs and danceable beats, they delivered something fresh, unexpected and yet entirely in tune with what they’d forged their reputation with.
Listen to ‘Typhoons’ by Royal Blood on the Brighton & Hove Albion FC playlist on Spotify.
The reaction was phenomenal, with highlights including 20 million streams, a premiere as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record and a run-on Radio 1’s A-list. It landed on the cover of Spotify’s flagship global rock playlist Rock This and earned alternative radio support and media attention across the globe.
In short, Royal Blood are primed to be bigger than ever before. That feat is set to be realised when they release their eagerly anticipated third album Typhoons on April 30 via Warner Records.
Here she is. Can’t believe we finally get to share this with you!

When Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher sat down to talk about making a new album, they knew what they wanted to achieve. It involved a conscious return to their roots, back when they had made music that was influenced by Daft Punk, Justice, and Philippe Zdar of Cassius.
It also called for a similar back-to-basics approach to what had made their self-titled debut album so thrilling, visceral and original.
