Foxygen (Jonathan Rado and Sam France) have announced a new album, Seeing Other People, and shared a video for its first single, "Livin' a Lie." Seeing Other People is due out April 26 via Jagjaguwar. Check out the "Livin' a Lie" video below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art.

Seeing Other People is the follow-up to 2017's grandiose and theatrical Hang and 2014's ...And Star Power. "Livin' a Lie" is a bit more reigned in than most of the tracks on Hang. Foxygen wrote and self-produced Seeing Other People at Sonora Recorders in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles, California. Shawn Everett engineered and mixed the album, which features drummer Jim Keltner.

A press release says that Seeing Other People is a "goodbye" record. In the press release, France explains further: "For me Seeing Other People just means goodbye: Goodbye to the drugs, to the partying. Goodbye to my twenties now. Goodbye to my Saint Laurent-model-body. Goodbye to the touring circus - that's right, no more shows or tours for a while. Goodbye, hopefully, to the anxiety attacks. Goodbye to beating myself up because I didn't fit into those leather pants anymore. Fuck it. Goodbye to the facilities. And goodbye the leeches in my life. I know a lot of gritty stories about a lot of players in this business but you'll have to read between the lines." 

You can read a longer statement from France about the album here. In it France also says he's written a memoir entitled Sam Francisco: Confessions of an Indie Rock Star (it's unclear if he's being serious or not).

Alessandra Lichtenfeld directed the "Livin' a Lie" video, which was filmed in Calabasas, CA and the band's hometown, Westlake Village, after the Woolsey fires.
