Mapping the Rendezvous is the fifth studio album from British indie rock band Courteeners, released on 28 October 2016. Much of the album was written/recorded in Paris and was produced by the band's regular collaborator and bassist, Joe Cross.Fray cited the film Victoria by Sebastian Schipper as the lyrical inspiration. The album was announced in August while "The 17th" was made available on streaming platforms. In November the band embarked on a UK/European tour in support of the album. The album received mixed reviews, with the NME describing it as "they’ve only made half of a very good album", and Hotpress citing "when the band break out of their indie-pop straitjacket, the results can be riveting". Andy Gill in the Independent maintained that "the Courteeners are still pretty much mired in Mancunian mores on this latest album".
