UK electropop songstress Little Boots (aka Victoria Christina Hesketh) is gearing up for the release of her second album, Nocturnes, which is due out on May 5 via On Repeat. The album features collaborations with Simian Mobile Disco's James Ford and Hercules and Love Affair's Andy Butler, and she's just shared the LP's Tim Goldsworthy-produced lead single "Motorway." Take a listen to the piano-centric dance track at the bottom of this post.

Victoria will be heading to the U.S. next week to perform at South by Southwest in Austin, TX. She'll return stateside in May for a tour in support of Nocturnes, which includes a performance at Lincoln Hall on May 8. Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Friday (3/8) at noon CST.
