Northern Ireland post-rock quartet And So I Watch You From Afar have streamed their brand new single, IV In Air, their first new music since 2017's The Endless Shimmering album.

It's taken from. Jettison, the band's upcoming album which will be released through Equal Vision Records in partnership with Velocity Records on February 18. The new album, which features guest appearances from Clutch frontman Neil Fallon, Emma Ruth Rundle and The Arco String Quartet, is a 40-minute sonic journey, split into nine parts, featuring visual accompaniment from artist Sam Wiehl.

"Nothing in our repertoire comes close to the ambition of this latest project—the multimedia piece Jettison," the band say. "The album is a memorable experience that transports the listener away from the tumultuous times and into a blissful musical utopia."

The band will also embark on a headlining tour supporting "Jettison" across Europe and the UK in March and April. You can see the dates below, along with new album artwork and tracklisting.
