Bloc Party have announced that they have signed a new worldwide deal with Frenchkiss Records, with marketing and distribution handled by Universal’s Cooperative Music. This means that the band’s forthcoming fourth studio album will be their first not released by Wichita.

Writing on the band’s website, frontman Kele Okereke said: “It is with great pleasure that I would like to announce to the universe that Bloc Party have now signed to Frenchkiss Records. This signing has made Bloc Party very happy because not only do we know and love the people at this label but we know and love this label’s output. Frenchkiss has released some mighty fine music over the years, music that has gone on to influence this very band. So here’s to some more mighty fine music”.

In other news, Bloc Party will be re-releasing their debut single on Transgressive Records, ‘She’s Hearing Voices’, for this year’s Record Store Day.

Oh, and in other other news, Bloc Party are officially back together and recording a new album. I’m not sure we’ve actually mentioned that here before.
