Tweets included “turn the lights down low” and “if this is how I go”, with some fans believing that these are lyrics from the debut album.
Villains features a total of 11 tracks, including the previously released singles Dirt and Agenda.
The announcement follows the news that there will be a third single released from the album, complete with a lyric video, but it is as yet unclear as to which song this will be.
This is in addition to a music video for Agenda – the second single from the album which came out earlier this month.
Pre-orders for physical copies of the album are available online now, with digital pre-orders becoming available at midnight.
Updated 22 May 2018: Following the announcement of the debut album release date, Emma has published the music video for the single, Agenda.
