Speaking to the M.E.N, Liam Fray said the latest record was due out at the end of the year, or start of 2017.
Describing the album he said: “There are no drops in this one. I feel we let people off a bit with the last one. This one’s going to get you in the face, or body, or ears...”
The band have been performing at T in the Park since 2008 and says the country is like their second home.
He said: “I think there’s a certain affiliation between the Mancs and the Scots. They are always super up for it and there’s never nerves like when there are when you play other places. It’s like a second home.”
Their last album, ‘Concrete Love’, was released in 2014.
Watch the Courteeners play 'Not Nineteen Forever' at T in the Park.
