Stateless have announced that they have signed to Ninja Tune and plan to release a brand new single - titled 'Ariel' - on 22nd November.

The single is taken from the band's forthcoming album 'Matilda', which is scheduled for release in February 2011.

Since signing to Ninja Tune, Stateless have been working with producer Damian Taylor (Bjork, The Prodigy) in Vancouver and have taken a more electronic line for the new album.

'Ariel' finds vocalist Chris James laying out the melody over "West African guitar lines, crunching snare snaps and thunderous kicks, dubstep sub-bass splatters and glitchtronic interference".
