Bloc Party will make their return next week with Four, the U.K. band's fourth album and first in, well, four years. It's the follow-up to 2008's Intimacy and, according to Bloc Party, it's been several years in the making. Here's what they wrote about Four on their website:

In late 2010, Kele Okereke, Russell Lissack, Gordon Moakes and Matt Tong went into the studio. The result is Four - the fourth album by Bloc Party, greater than the sum of its four parts. The album will be released on the 20th of August but you can listen to the album in its entirety exclusively before it's released.
