Cults (the duo of Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion) released a new album, Offering, back in October via Sinderlyn. Now they have shared a new track, "I Got Your Message." It's a cover of a song by Hideout, who has been opening for Cults on tour and is fronted by Cults' touring member Gabriel Rodriguez (it was the opening track to Hideout's So Many Hoops, So Little Time album, released earlier this year). The cover features Christopher Owens, formerly of Girls, whose new project Curls has also been opening for Cults. Listen below.

The band offered up this statement about the track: "Hello everybody! We just wanted reach out and thank you guys for coming out to what was honestly our favorite tour yet. We spent a good bit of time working on this music and we had no idea how this tour was going to go down but you guys blew away our expectations night after night.

"As a gift we wanted to send you guys a link to a song we recorded a few months ago. It's kind of a full circle thing as it's a cover of a song of the band that opened the majority of the tour (Hideout) featuring Christopher Owens from Curls who also did support for the California dates. We think it's a fun little ditty and we hope you guys enjoy it.

"Y'all are the best for showing up and making this tour as awesome as it was. We'll see you out in Europe in January and hopefully everywhere else throughout the rest of the year."

Read our recent interview with Cults on Offering.

Previously Cults shared Offering's title track (also its opening track), which was one of our Songs of the Week, the album's second single, "I Took Your Picture" (which was also one of our Songs of the Week), and a combined video for "I Took Your Picture" and "With Your Eyes Closed." Then the band shared another song from the album, the catchy "Right Words" (which was also one of our Songs of the Week).

Offering is the band's third album and it comes four years after 2013's sophomore release, Static. In that time Madeline Follin teamed up with her brother, Richie Follin of Guards (and Willowz) to form a new band appropriately named Follin. Cults consciously decided to take a break, as Oblivion explained in a previous press release: "I feel like we stepped into a tour van when we were 21, and basically didn't get out of it for the next few years. We wanted to give ourselves some space to have normal lives, and wait until there was something new to say."

Follin added: "It was exciting, because writing stopped feeling like a homework assignment. I was able to sit down and do it only when I wanted to. These songs are less art projects, less thinking 'this is a heartbreak song, what would Lesley Gore do?' and more reflective of things that have happened in our own lives."
