Matthew Sweet, power pop icon of the ’90s, is gearing up to release his first album since 2011. Dubbed Tomorrow Forever, it’s a record grounded very much in his roots — it serves as his first since moving back to Nebraska and is meant to hearken back to his commercially successful 1991 album, Girlfriend. Its running themes, too, are inspired by Sweet’s personal life, especially the tragic passing of his mother.

The latest single off Tomorrow Forever, “Circle”, doesn’t deal explicitly with death, but does contemplate the existence and shelf life of love. “’Circle'” is like a circle of hope for bliss,” Sweet tells Consequence of Sound of the thumping power pop cut. “Is there time left? Yes! Can it be known? What is it like to be love?”

Hear it down below.

Tomorrow Forever is out June 16th through Sweet’s own Honeycomb Hideout label. It boasts a hefty list of guest contributors, including guitarists Jason Victor (Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3) and Val McCallum (Jackson Browne), as well as The Bangles’ Debbi Peterson and The Zombies’ Rod Argent. Pre-order it via iTunes, Spotify, or Amazon.
