The Cribs have made new album 'In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull' available to listen to in its entirety online via Spotify,

The Wakefield trio will be physically releasing the album on Monday (May 7), but for now you can scroll to the bottom of this page and listen to it in full.

This is the first LP they have released since former The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr joined the band for 2009's Ignore The Ignorant, and also the first material released since frontman Ryan Jarman revealed that he had been suffering with a "psychological illness" over the past two years, which led to the demise of his and pop songstress Kate Nash's relationship.

As such, the theme for the In The Belly Of… appears to be honest, with Jarman saying in an interview with NME: "This record's more honest. I've always been conscious that I don't want to be too honest because it makes me cringe, but on this record there are definitely songs that are about personal stuff that's gone on in my life."
