Brooklyn pop weirdos TEEN are prepping their third studio album, Love Yes, due out on February 19th. The new Carpark Records release follows 2014’s well-received The Way and Color and is previewed this week with “Tokyo”.

Vibrant and colored with synths equal parts loopy and hooky, it’s the kind of song that’ll leave you dazed but immediately craving another spin. Singer Teeny Lieberson talked to NPR.com about the track’s inspiration:

“‘Tokyo’ is the story of a man who loses interest in his wife and fantasizes about leaving her. His loss of interest is not merely a reflection of his feelings, but rather his unwillingness to grow old and the challenge age puts to his ego. His experience illuminates our societal obsession with youth culture and our ingrained fear of aging and loss of power. We value women only in the virgin ideal, often because they are thought to be conquerable and and a vessel for validating dominance. We would prefer to live in the fantasy of young skin rather than face our growth and relinquish control to our inevitable death.”
