Wide Awake! is the forthcoming album from Parquet Courts, scheduled for release on May 18th. Due through Rough Trade, the follow-up to 2016’s Human Performance was produced Brian Burton, better known as Danger Mouse.
Already the New York-bred outfit has shared the first single, “Almost Had to Start a Fight/In and Out of Patience”. The garage rockers return today with the title track in hand. As its name suggests, “Wide Awake” is a fun and boisterous number, and comes complete with an equally jubilant music video filmed during Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
Check out the Brother Willis-directed clip below.
