After a ten-year absence, gaunt, shaman-like frontman Richard Ashcroft's recently reunited psych-pop outfit the Verve will return Aug. 19 with their yet-to-be titled follow up to 1997's acclaimed set Urban Hymns.

Currently, confirmed details are sparse, but according to web rumors, the band's fourth album to date will be titled Four -- go figure! -- and will drop stateside on the Verve's On Our Own imprint. One confirmed detail: The album's first single is titled "Love Is Noise," a bass-thumping, trance-like freak-out replete with stringing guitars and "love"-heavy lyrics, and is streaming now via the Verve's MySpace page.
