Premiata Forneria Marconi (PFM) have released two versions of their new track Central District (Quartiere Generale) in both English and Italian.

It’s the first material from the band’s upcoming album Emotional Tattoos, which will arrive on October 27 via InsideOut Music.

The cover artwork was created by by Stefano and Mattia Bonora with art direction by ArtKademy and the concept by Aereostella – and it was revealed as a mural painting in Milan, Italy.
