HEY WHAT? A NEW LOW ALBUM IS ON THE WAY? There’s some news worth shouting about. The Duluth, Minnesota-based duo of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker are set to follow up the excellent Double Negative just shy of its 3-year anniversary, with their 13th studio album due in a few months. It’s called HEY WHAT, and the pair have shared the video for lead single ‘Days Like These’, not to mention announced a tour for next year.

Beautiful harmonies, sweeping ambient passages and unsettling, speaker-rattling distortion are the order of the day as the song unfolds over nearly six minutes, the first taste of an album that ‘[finds] new ways to express the discord and delight of being alive.’ Sounds suitably tumultuous, then. The aforementioned tour dates are below, on sale now, and the album lands on Friday September 10th on Sub Pop Records.
