‘Jack Rides The Sky’ is out June 10 and sees Flanagan pull together songs and ideas created over the past ten years.

The announcement comes alongside the psychedelic ‘Skyhorse X Skyhorse’, which grows from dreamy to intense.

“Skyhorse x Skyhorse was born in a shed in somebody else’s back garden in north London,” explained Flanagan. “It began as 8 different songs and after half a year of experimentation it eventually became one. I wanted to try and construct a song that took you to as many different places as possible within three minutes. I think it does.”

Mystery Jets released their sixth studio album ‘A Billion Heartbeats’ in 2020. “With protest songs and celebrations of the NHS all part of their new identity, it’s a wildly successful take on the world at large as the band enter a new decade,” NME wrote of the album in a four-star review.

Mystery Jets also shared covers album ‘Home Protests’ in 2020.

Explaining how they recorded the album in lockdown, the Jets said: “As the world ground to a halt, with global lockdowns and illnesses, we continued to protest from our homes: recording lo-fi live covers of nine timeless tracks spanning the last half-century. Songs tackling perennial issues from discrimination and homelessness to war, consumer capitalism and environmental destruction.”
