Doves to appear on the next episode of The Record Club

The band will discuss the making of their first album in 11 years, The Universal Want.

Doves will join us the next episode of The Record Club to talk all about their comeback album, The Universal Want.

Following a ten-year hiatus, the Manchester alt-rock group returned in 2019 with a string of tour dates, and this September released their fifth studio album - currently on course to be this week's Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart.

The Universal Want is Doves' first album in more than 11 years, since 2009's Kingdom of Rust, and if it stays on track will be the band's third Number 1 collection. See Doves' full Official Chart History here.

Fans are encouraged to buy a copy of the album - available on CD, LP and limited edition picture disc - from their local record shop, give it a listen and join the interview live with their questions for Doves - one lucky commenter will win a £100 loaded Record Token to spend at the indie record shop of their choice.

Set your reminder for The Record Club with Doves.
