Having recently been announced as special guest to Snow Patrol on their huge UK arena tour, Kodaline have just released their eagerly anticipated new album ‘Politics Of Living’ September 28th on Sony Music.

‘Politics of Living’ sees Kodaline team up with some of the hottest production and writing talent imaginable including hitmaker supreme Steve Mac (‘Shape Of You’ by Ed Sheeran), pop guru Johnny Coffer (Rag’N’Bone Man, Beyonce), Jonas Jeberg (Dizzee Rascal, Kylie Minogue), Stephen Harris (Miles Kane, Kaiser Chiefs) as well as long-time collaborator Johnny McDaid (‘What About Us’ by Pink).

The band’s latest single ‘Head Held High’ is a mandolin-driven piece of summer pop with a powerful message that has become a BBC Radio 2 mainstay, and is one of the standout tracks taken from the new album. The single follows the release of one of their best ever singles earlier this year, ‘Follow Your Fire’, a slice of powerhouse pop which has already reached 20 million Spotify streams and showed the band are ready to cement their place amongst the UK’s best in 2018.

Kodaline will also feature on the brand new track ‘All For Love’ on chart-topping DJ and producer Sigala’s new album ‘Brighter Days’, which is also out today.

After a blockbuster summer including playing to a sold out crowd of 21,000 fans at Dublin’s Malahide Castle in June, as well as sets at the Isle Of Wight and TRNSMT festivals, Kodaline head out on a slew of European and US dates this autumn as well as the following arena dates with Snow Patrol next year:
