The Mountain Goats will release a new album called Goths on May 19th. In anticipation, the LP is streaming in full below courtesy of NPR.

Due out through Merge, Goths serves as the band’s 16th (!) studio effort to date following Beat the Champ in 2015. Its 12 tracks were recorded at Blackbird in Nashville alongside producer Brandon Eggleston. All vocals were done live, with no pitch correction whatsoever, and John Darnielle & co. went without using any guitars throughout the entire session.

As its title suggests, the record focuses on the goth subculture. “The theme this time around is goth,” the band’s Peter Hughes wrote in a statement, “a subject closer to my heart perhaps than that of any Mountain Goats album previous. And while John writes the songs, as he always has, it feels more than ever like he’s speaking for all of us in the band, erstwhile goths (raises hand) or otherwise, for these are songs that approach an identity most often associated with youth from a perspective that is inescapably adult.”
