Fan-favourite UK indie outfit Arthur Beatrice have announced release details for their eagerly awaited new album, Keeping The Peace, in addition to unveiling plans for their own documentary video clip.

After having successfully signed to Australian label Caroline late last year, the Londoners are back in the fray with their sophomore album, due out in May, and the launching of the new documentary clip for new single Real Life.

Keeping The Peace makes full use of the London Contemporary Orchestra, giving it a winning shine, and was co-produced by the band with Matt Wiggins and recorded at London’s iconic Church & Pool Studios.

Real Life is the second track released from the upcoming LP, following on from the introductory number Who Returned dropped at the close of last year, and has been unveiled as a video documentary to coincide with the album's impending release date. Directed by George Belfield (Wet, Kwabs, Paloma Faith), the visuals put brush strokes of reference to the song’s deeper meaning. This is their life. Their family. Their documentary.

On the video’s concept, band member Elliot Barnes said: "When I was younger, my Dad told me that he hadn't felt any more grown up since the age of 21. Once I was 21 myself, I realised how crazy it was that I probably wouldn't feel any more prepared for the rest of my life, and that he had felt like I did when he'd got married and had me. I felt like it was rare to have a song that was a Thank You to your parents, that it would be nice to show that excitement and fear of having a child in the most direct way possible. Dylan and Daryl were amazing in allowing George to document their experience, and he in turn was incredible in showing just how surreal the whole thing is with his unique take on storytelling.”

Keeping The Peace is set to sail on 20 May through Open Assembly Recordings/Caroline Australia. Check out the moving documentary accompaniment for Real Life below.
