The View on Yesterday, Dundee guitar band The View released a free track "Sunday" on its official website. The song is a first taste of the band's forthcoming third album, which frontman Kyle Falconer promises will be "more articulate" than previous. Listen to "Sunday" from The View here.

Speaking to Scotland's Daily Record about the album which is scheduled for a spring release, Falconer said, "The new album will sound much cleaner and you'll be able to hear my vocals a lot clearer. It's more articulate."

The Scottish band is probably beat known for its single "Same Jeans." Falconer explained that the new album will be very different from 2007 debut Hats Off to the Buskers and its follow-up Which Bitch? He added, "We were proud of Which Bitch? but it wasn't well received and didn't get played much on radio. We were gutted."

Falconer revealed that his thoughts at the time were, "'We need to get back to the music rather than the craziness'."

Previous albums Hats Off to the Buskers and Which Bitch? were produced by Owen Morris, best known for his work with Oasis and The Verve, but Martin "Youth" Glover, who has made records with the Delays and the Futureheads and was founder member and bassist of UK band Killing Joke, has been chosen to produce the third album. "We were partying far too hard on Which Bitch? We'd done Owen in ... he'd had enough of us," Falconer said. "We were all cooped up in a studio, drinking far too much and it all went a bit too far."

"If we'd worked together again it was just going to get screwed up again," he added. "We split from Owen to save his sanity and our own."

Tired out from touring, the band relocated to Liverpool to work on its next album. "We lived in a house together, got up and rehearsed every day, and really started to get our a**** in gear again," he said. "We'd wake up in the morning with smiles on our faces. It reminded us of the early days at The Doghouse in Dundee."

"The spirit of The Beatles was inspiring. We went to The Cavern club for a few pints and I'd cycle past Penny Lane and be singing lyrics from the song in my head," he continued.

Falconer also revealed the band worked with Scottish guitarist Johnny McElhone, who has written songs for Texas, Sharleen Spiteri, Hipsway, and Altered Images. "Johnny gave us some real words of wisdom and a bit of direction about songwriting. We got a great new song called 'Happy' out of it."

Coming from humble backgrounds in Dundee, Scotland, and rescued from bleak youth training jobs, Falconer (vocals and rhythm guitar), Kieren Webster (bass), Peter Reilly (lead guitar), and Steve Morrison (drums), initially recorded an EP with a local label and soon gained recognition as an exciting live band. The band signed with 1965 Records label, founded by James Endeacott who first signed The Libertines. The band's debut album had a catchy simplicity and was generally well received, gaining nomination for the 2007 Mercury Music Prize and debuting at number one in the UK charts, but the ill-fated second album was not instantly commercial.

Falconer has guested recently on Mark Ronson's UK tour. He sang lead vocals on Ronson's single "The Bike Song."

The View are set to preview its new material on a tour of the UK next month.
