Napoleon IIIrd is back with a much-anticipated new release and a February tour with Domino Records signings Wild Beasts.

The mini-album 'Hideki Yukawa' is Napoleon IIIrd's first new release since his acclaimed album 'In Debt To', which was widely thought of as one of 2007's best debuts. Drowned In Sound called him "one of the most visionary solo artists in the world today", and The Guardian, Radio 1's Huw Stephens, XFM's John Kennedy, Dazed & Confused, Plan B, Artrocker, Amelia's Magazine, Loud & Quiet and legions of blogs and zines were similarly full of praise.

His remix work has included recent reworkings of singles by The Cribs, Los Campesinos, ¬°Forward, Russia!, I Concur and Sky Larkin.

'Hideki Yukawa' will be available from eMusic, iTunes and all good download services from February 16th. A second album is due in late 2009.

Napoleon IIIrd will appear live at Escobar in Wakefield on 28th February 2009.
