Swedish electro-pop band Little Dragon have announced a new album, New Me, Same Us, and shared its first single, "Hold On." New Me, Same Us is due out March 27 via Ninja Tune. Check out "Hold On" below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as the band's upcoming tour dates.

Little Dragon consists of vocalist Yukimi Nagano, multi-instrumentalists Håkan Wirenstarnd and Fredrik Wallin on keyboards and bass respectively, and Erik Bodin on drums and percussion. The band self-produced and self-recorded New Me, Same Us in their home-built studio in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The band collectively had this to say about New Me, Same Us in a press release: "This album has been the most collaborative for us yet, which might sound weird considering we've been making music together for all these years, but we worked hard at being honest, finding the courage to let go of our egos and be pieces of something bigger.... We are all on our own personal journeys, full of change, yet still we stand united with stories we believe in, that make us who we are." 

The band had this to say about "Hold On" in the press release: "It started out as a slick house track but transformed once Fred played the bass through it and we all worked it together. It became something raw and soulful. It's a simple groove that makes us dance. We can't wait to play it live because once we play it live it most certainly will change again."

Little Dragon released their last album, Season High, back in April 2017 via Loma Vista. That was followed by 2018's Lover Chanting EP. Last October they shared a brand new song, "Tongue Kissing," that is not featured on the new album but was one of our Songs of the Week.
