Editors‘ vocalist Tom Smith has revealed in NME that the Birmingham band’s forthcoming third album ‘In This Light And On This Evening’ is influenced by science fiction films such including ‘Blade Runner’

The album, out on September 21, is set to include songs such as ‘Papillon’, ‘Bricks And Mortar’, ‘Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool’ and ‘Like Treasure’, with Smith explaining that he saw the record firmly rooted in the future.

“There’s a sheen to the whole album,” He said. “You know how ‘Blade Runner’ looks beautiful, that civilisation on the brink of the edge? It feels the album could soundtrack that kind of thing.”
