The Japanese Popstars have signed a new deal with John Digweed’s Bedrock label, through which they will release their third album, ‘Disconnect/Reconnect’, on 15 Jul. The band’s last album, ‘Controlling Your Allegiance’, was released by EMI in 2011.

The group’s Gary Curran told CMU: “We knew towards the end of last year that we had gotten slightly lost between the music that we loved writing and performing and the music that our label at the time wanted or needed us to write. The last album was an amazing experience for us all, the team we worked with were incredible and we played some amazing shows throughout the world”.

However, he continued: “We ended up playing lots of festival main stage day time shows, amongst these amazing talented and successful artists but we knew that something wasn’t right, we knew that we wanted to move back onto the dance stages, and back into the night. I guess this album is the expression of that feeling”.

The tracklist for the new album is as follows:

Matter Of Time feat Green Velvet
No Music
Pump Power
Out Of No Where
Night Shift
The Dealer
Heavy Hitter
