Last month, Melbourne’s Cut Copy returned with their first single in four years, the soaring and psychedelic “Airborne”, which they soon followed up with an accompanying music video. Now, the Grammy-nominated synthpop group has announced its upcoming album, Haiku From Zero, out September 22nd through Astralwerks.

“So much of this album is about this mosaic of information, images that we’re surrounded by on a day-to-day basis,” singer Dan Whitword shared in a statement about the album. “Sometimes it feels like overload, but there’s a weird random beauty in it. The idea of squeezing poetry form chaos was where the title of the album came from—the idea of finding something poetic in the overload.”

As another preview for the Free Your Mind follow-up, Cut Copy has shared “Standing in the Middle of the Field”. It shares similar disco vibes with “Airborne” and features more rising synths. A 7-inch of the track with an exclusive B-side will come with each Haiku From Zero vinyl pre-order. Take a listen below.
