UK rockers Editors have announced their seventh album, EBM, coming in September. Following up 2018’s Violence, EBM is Editors’ first full-length project with Benjamin John Power, aka Blanck Mass, who was announced as a full-time Editor last month along with the single “Heart Attack.” Now, Editors are sharing another new song, “Karma Climb,” which also has a video.

“There is a strong physicality to this record,” Power says of EBM. “EBM started its life with the intention of connecting with people and filling a very physical space. There is also however an emotional physicality running throughout; An urgency and a sense of panic. An unease. Even in its more tender moments there is a yearning for connection.”

“Ben has certainly been a shot of adrenaline in our creative process,” frontman Tom Smith adds of working with Power. “The songs are so immediate, and in your face.” He also says of “Karma Climb,”: “It’s about hedonistic escapism, not only from the world generally, but also from what people think of you.”
