It’s certainly been more than a hot minute since we last heard from Small Black — the New York four-piece dropped their sample-friendly Moon Killer mixtape back in 2011, but their last proper studio release was 2010’s New Chain. Today, they announce their return with Limits of Desire, due out May 14th via Jagjaguwar.

The sophomore album sees the synth-pop band trade in some of their past chillwave haze for more luster and clarity. It also intends to dig deep thematically — according to a press release, the cover (above), shot by Dutch artist Scarlett Hooft Graafland, captures the LP’s underlying subject matter: “A moving depiction of modern connectivity and interaction”.

Below, preview the new record with its first single, the soaring, anthemic “Free At Dawn”.
