Brilliant! Tragic! is the fourth studio album by Art Brut, to be released on May 23, 2011. The first single from the album will be "Lost Weekend". The album was recorded in Salem, Oregon and is the second to be produced by Frank Black, best known as the frontman of Pixies.
The tracklisting and release details were confirmed in early March 2011.
Art Brut frontman Eddie Argos has already described "Brilliant! Tragic!" as his "favourite" Art Brut album, saying that it was definitely their "greatest" album so far.  "Bang Bang Rock & Roll did what it said on the tin", Argos explained, "It's A Bit Complicated was a bit complicated. On Art Brut vs. Satan we had to fight Satan. This one follows the same pattern, it is a 'brilliant, tragic', record. If it was a TV show you'd define it as a dramedy."
