The Bowie, EDM-inspired record comes with the abstract artwork seen above and features 10 tracks, including lead single “Come A Little Closer” and a track featuring The Kills’ Alison Mosshart. Pre-orders are ongoing.
“Musically, what we’re trying to do is to be super thoughtful but blend that with the playfulness,” the band recently told us. “It became a game to juxtapose and blend those polar opposites. We wanted to see how we can take those odd spectrums and marry them cohesively.”
