Danish trio Efterklang have announced their first new album in seven years, Altid Sammen, and shared a video for its first single, "Vi er uendelig." The video features iconic model/photographer Helena Christensen. They have also announced some tour dates. Altid Sammen is due out Sept 20 via 4AD. Check out the "Vi er uendelig" video below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as the tour dates.

Efterklang consists of Casper Clausen (vocals), Mads Brauer (synths, electronics), and Rasmus Stolberg (bass). Altid Sammen is the band's fifth album, the follow-up to 2012's Piramida. Previous collaborator Andreas Koefoed directed the "Vi er uendelig" video, which a press release says is "a homage to an iconic Johnny Hallyday TV performance in 1964." The band's hiatus began in 2014 after they played one final show in their hometown of Sønderborg.

"We needed a break from the album and touring routine, and we needed a break from Efterklang," says Clausen in a press release about the long gap between albums. "After the Sønderborg show, things felt very exciting - and a bit scary too. We could think freely, and move in new directions again, just focusing on the things that excited the three of us."

Of the new album, Clausen says: "Altid Sammen's songs are about belief and togetherness. Not in a religious way - none of us are believers of a defined religion. The words are searching for meaning in intimate relationships, in nature, in death and eternity. The bonds we create; to gather, hold hands, sing or share a moment together. We're all connected, across nations, age, sex and gender. We come together with all of our backgrounds, and we move apart in all sorts of directions, always together."

Altid Sammen Tracklist:

1. Vi er uendelig
2. Supertanker
3. Uden ansigt
4. I dine øjne
5. Hænder der åbner sig
