“You think you’ve been waiting. But the wait has just begun…,” wrote guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. as a caption for the video. “Welcome to 𝐭 𝐡 𝐞 𝐧 𝐞 𝐰 𝐚 𝐛 𝐧 𝐨 𝐫 𝐦 𝐚 𝐥.”
Entitled The New Abnormal, the band’s sixth full-length will arrive on April 10th via Cult/RCA Records. The New Abnormal serves as the long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s Comedown Machine.
The nine-track effort was recorded at Shangri-La Studios in Malibu and produced by Rick Rubin, according to a press release. The album’s cover artwork is a painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat called Bird on Money.
The first single is called “At the Door” and comes accompanied with an animated music video that’s straight out of the ’80s. Writer/director Mike Burakoff presents an intergalactic space battle conjured up by a young boy seeking to escape his own harrowing reality.
