It’s been a minute since we’ve heard anything from those indie rock figureheads, the New Pornographers. Today the band announced their first LP since 2010’s Together, called Brill Bruisers. In a press release, frontman A.C. Newman called it a “collaborative album” that will feature the likes of Neko Case and Dan Bejar.
 
The album’s debut single is also its title track, an ecstatic, bouncing, scream-out-the-car-window pop tune. It’s everything you’ve missed from TNP in under 3 minutes. You can listen to the song via a vaguely interactive video designed by Chris Shier, and check out the band’s expansive upcoming tour dates and the Brill Bruisers tracklist below.
