OCEAN Colour Scene, fronted by Torquay-based musician Steve Cradock, release the title track from their tenth studio album Painting on February 18.
The new album is released prior to the single next Monday.
Painting is described as 'a glorious slab of uplifting pop perfection guaranteed to lift anyone out of the winter blues'.
One reviewer wrote: "The album Painting is a sonic splash of colour reflecting eclectic influences ranging from Public Image Ltd, Bert Jansch and Burning Spear to Bacharach and David.
"The album is a representation of all that is great about British rock; anthems, heartfelt ballads and weird, left-of-middle psychedelic wig-outs.
"Quite simply, Painting is another great record from British pop's most under-rated storytellers. As artistic statements go, it might just be their masterpiece."
Recorded at Vada Studios in Warwickshire with producer Matt Terry, Painting is also available now from online download sites.
