Myths of the Near Future

Myths of the Near Future is the Mercury Music Prize winning debut album by English band Klaxons on 29 January 2007 through Polydor Records. Myths of the Near Future contains re-recorded versions of "Gravity's Rainbow", "Atlantis to Interzone" and "Four Horsemen of 2012", along with the singles "Magick", "Golden Skans" and, most recently, "It's Not Over Yet". It is named after Myths of the Near Future, a collection of short stories by British writer J. G. Ballard. It was recorded in Battle, East Sussex. Some people have complained about the loudness of the album clipping the sound.

Upon the week of its release, "Golden Skans" climbed to number seven in the UK Top 40 charts. The album was given a largely enthusiastic review by NME, although it received more mixed reviews from other critics. Some versions of the album contain an unnamed instrumental at 17:17 of the track "Four Horsemen of 2012".

Chart positions
The album charted at number two in the UK Album Chart, just behind Norah Jones' album Not Too Late. Since its release in January 2007, the album dropped as low as number 75 but has taken a further rise back into the charts, peaking as high as number 19 on 7 July 2007. As of November 2007, the album has sold over 271,000 in the UK as of the end of 2007, making it the 54th highest selling album in the UK in 2007.
