About this deal

This period of time allowed him to re-listen to the songs they had up to that point, which he felt could be improved upon. They spent the rest of the year working on their new album at a studio in Manchester, with the intent on releasing it early in the following year. Fray described the final artwork as attempting to "convey that kind of elegance but a bit more industrial". Anna is an indie pop album that expands on the use of synthesizers and incorporation of electronic sounds that were partially alluded to with Falcon. was released as the album's third single on 6 December 2013; the seven-inch vinyl edition featured a remix of "Are You in Love with a Notion?

Marquee" is a violin-driven song that lacks drums, while "Money" is a glam rock and space rock track, styled after the work of Muse and Kings of Leon. Though Anna was in the running to top the UK Albums Chart during the mid-week, it ultimately peaked at number six, losing out to the Les Misérables soundtrack.The album's closing song "Here Come the Young Men" features guitar riffs in the style of the Vaccines. Sometime after, they had accumulated six-to-seven new songs, though Fray was unsure of what direction they would take. The pair later met up and discussed various topics, before eventually talking about what the band wanted from their next album. Though originally scheduled for 28 January 2013, "Lose Control" was released as the album's lead single a month early on 10 December 2012; the seven-inch vinyl record edition featured "Chipping Away" as its B-side.

The album reached number six in the United Kingdom, number seven in Scotland and number 85 in Ireland. Two years later we made the move to our present address, 35 The Headrow, where we have remained ever since.PopMatters contributor Ben Olson saw Anna as being "every bit as infectious as their impressive debut, but it is bigger, glossier, and clearly intended to be played in massive, sold out stadiums". musicOMH contributor Howard Gorman countered this by writing that Fray's "solid vocals keep the album on track and worthy of hearing through to the end". It peaked at number six in the UK Albums Chart; out of its three singles, "You Overdid It Doll" reached the highest at number 24 in the United Kingdom. Jamie Carson of Clash said it was "full of uninspired and recycled riffs starkly illuminated by the God awful woe-is-me-I’m-northern lyrics".
