On April 8th, Parquet Courts will issue a new album, Human Performance. Due out through Rough Trade, the full-lengths spans a generous 13 tracks with titles like “Captive of the Sun”, “Berlin Got Blurry”, and “Pathos Prairie”. It follows last year’s Monastic Living EP and Live at Third Man Records release along with 2014’s Sunbathing Animal LP.

Our first preview of the upcoming record comes with the chugging lead single “Dust” and a track called “Outside”. Check out “Dust” via its accompanying music video, directed by Johann Rashid, which pits a 9-5 employee against a strange creature. Meanwhile, the New York garage rockers debuted the live version of “Outside” earlier this week at WFUV.

Watch both clips below.
