British indie rock group Bloc Party have sent out to their mailing list details of their fourth album, which will be titled Four and released on 20 August.

The newsletter was brief, stating:

Greetings Bloc-lings. As you may have heard, we've been beavering away over the winter working on a new record, and now that the parks and back-gardens have finally broken into glorious sunshine, we can seasonably announce its birth upon the world. 
'Four' came together in a series of back-to-basics writing sessions in New York between November and April, and was skilfully guided, produced and mixed by the patient hands and ears of Alex Newport during two blocks of recording at New York's Stratosphere this spring.

They also made a trailer for the album, which can be viewed below:
