IDLES have returned and teased LP #3 with new single and music video for ‘Mr Motivator’.
The noisy positivity track is accompanied by self-directed visuals featuring fan-sourced workout footage as well as the band themselves.
IDLES frontman Joe Talbot commented, “We want to start this journey with a means to not only encapsulate the album’s sentiment, but to encourage our audience to dance like no one is watching and plough through these dark times with a two tonne machete of a song and the most beautiful community of scumbags ever assembled. Let’s go. All is love.”

LP3 will be the follow-up to the band’s highly acclaimed second album ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’, which was one of the best reviewed rock records of 2018. The album debuted in the Top 5 on the Official UK Album Charts as well as earned them performance slots at Glastonbury, Jools Holland, NPR’s Tiny Desk and sold out tours across the world.
Last year the band dropped tracks ‘Mercedes Marxist’ and ‘I Dream Guillotine’ as well as live album ‘A Beautiful Thing: Idles Live at le Bataclan’. In 2019 the Bristol five-piece also took home the coveted Ivor Novello Award for Best Album and received nominations for the Mercury Prize and a BRIT Award.
Furthermore, all 10,000 tickets to their December headline performance at London’s Alexandra Palace sold out in under 24 hours.
