Low are releasing a new album, Double Negative, on September 14 via Sub Pop. When the album was announced they shared videos for three new songs, "Quorum," "Dancing and Blood," and "Fly" (shared as one complete 14-minute piece, a triptych, as well as separately). The songs all made our Songs of the Week list. Now Low have shared the album's closing track, "Disarray." Listen below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

Double Negative is the follow-up to 2015's Ones and Sixes. A previous press release described Double Negative as Low's "most brazen, abrasive (and, paradoxically, most empowering) album." Low (Alan Sparhawk, Mimi Parker, and bassist Steve Garrington) recorded the album at Justin Vernon's April Base studio in Eau Claire, Wisconsin (where they recorded Ones and Sixes) with producer B.J. Burton (Bon Iver, Lizzo, James Blake, and Francis and the Lights). The press release said the band "knew they wanted to go further with Burton and his palette of sounds: they wanted to see what someone who is, as Sparhawk puts it, 'a hip-hop guy' could truly do with their music." 

Music writer Grayson Currin wrote the band's bio for this album and described the album as such: "Double Negative is, indeed, a record perfectly and painfully suited for our time. Loud and contentious and commanding, Low fights for the world by fighting against it. It begins in pure bedlam, with a beat built from a loop of ruptured noise waging war against the paired voices of Sparhawk and Parker the moment they begin to sing during the massive 'Quorum.' For forty minutes, they indulge the battle, trying to be heard amid the noisy grain, sometimes winning and sometimes being tossed toward oblivion."
