Joe Talbot has invited Idles fans to “plough through these dark times with a two tonne machete of a song”.

The video for new song, Mr. Motivator, features a workout done by Joe and the rest of the band in their homes across Bristol, as well as a few fans.

The track looks set to feature on the band’s as-yet untitled third album, which in December was revealed to be in the process of being mixed.

Joe said: “We want to start this journey with a means to not only encapsulate the album’s sentiment, but to encourage our audience to dance like no one is watching and plough through these dark times with a two tonne machete of a song and the most beautiful community of scumbags ever assembled. Let’s go. All is love.”
