Friendly Fires released their second album Pala on Monday following a headline show at the Brighton Great Escape festival last weekend.
The record was produced by Paul Epworth (Florence and the Machine, Adele) and features the first two singles Live Those Days Tonight and Hawaiian Air, and Blue Cassette, which the band are offering as a free download from their official site.
