German electronic prog pioneers Tangerine Dream have announced that they will release their brand new studio album Raum through Kscope on February 25. At the same time the band have announced a run of UK tour dates for March.

The seven-track Raum, which opens with the 17-minute In 256 Zeichen, is the second studio album that current Tangerine Dream line-up of Thorsten Quaeschning, Hoshiko Yamane and Paul Frick have recorded since the passing of the founder Edgar Froese in 2015.

"With deep respect for the sound of the previous five decades, this record continues in the ever-evolving pathway of Tangerine Dream," the band say.
