Three years after being dropped by their former label, Sonic Magazine is reporting that Swedish rockers Sahara Hotnights are finally returning to the scene with their 4th album.

Titled “What If Leaving Is A Loving Thing”, the new record will be released April 18th under their own label Stand By Your Band on Universal Music, followed by a tour starting in May. So far only Scandinavian dates have been announced, but hopefully fans in other parts of the world will also get a chance to see the band live.

The first single of the new album, “Cheek To Cheek” was premiered by a performance at this year’s Swedish Grammy awards (see video below), and is now climbing the charts.

May 4 The Cod i Strömstad
