Following their second Mercury Music Prize nomination for their second album {Awayland}, Villagers are to release ‘Nothing Arrived’, (a ‘hybrid of melancholy and euphoria’ - Uncut) as a single on 11th November 2013.

The accompanying video, directed by Alden Volney documents a day in the life of lonely office worker Terrence Bliss - whose repetitive existence is momentarily disturbed. Watch it HERE.

Villagers appeared at many festivals this summer including Glastonbury, T in the Park, Latitude, Leeds and Reading, Green Man and also made an appearance at Beck's Song Reader Live at the Barbican alongside Jarvis Cocker and Franz Ferdinand. The band’s performance of ‘Nothing Arrived’ at Glastonbury can be viewed HERE.
