Camera Obscura will be releasing their fifth studio album, Desire Lines, on June 3rd. The Scottish five piece have been performing and releasing records since 1996 and this will be their second release on the legendary 4AD label. There have been two singles released so far from the new album, “Do It Again” and “Fifth In Line To The Throne”. Hear what Camera Obscura’s Tracyanne Campbell says about the new single (from the 4AD website)…

“’Fifth In Line To The Throne’ is a song about someone in a seemingly perfect relationship but there is a dark underside to it. We wanted to sound menacing and give folk the creeps. I believe Princess Beatrice is fifth in line by the way.”

There’s a free download of “Fifth In Line To The Throne” available here or you can stream it below.
