Metronomy have announced a new album, Metronomy Forever, and shared a video for a new song from it, "Salted Caramel Ice Cream." Metronomy Forever is due out September 13 via Because Music. It includes "Lately," a new song the British band shared via a video last month (it was #1 on our Songs of the Week list). Check out the "Salted Caramel Ice Cream" video below, followed by the "Lately" video again and the album's tracklist and cover art (by Anne Zeum). Also below are the band's upcoming tour dates.

Metronomy Forever is the follow-up to 2016's Summer 08. Since then frontman Joseph Mount did production work on Robyn's Honey (Robyn appeared on Summer 08). Mount also moved from Paris to the English countryside, which influenced the album.

Mount had this to say about Metronomy Forever in a press release: "What happens is when you're making music and you enter a world where you have achieved some sort of celebrity no matter how large or small you start to think about yourself in terms of legacy and what you're going to leave behind and then you realize that's limited to the interest people have in you. In the end I feel completely comfortable with it. The less importance you place in any art the more interesting it can become in a way...I'm making music, I'm going to do some concerts, I need to feed my children."

The video for "Lately" was Mount's directorial debut and he returns behind the camera for the "Salted Caramel Ice Cream" video.

Mount had this to say about the video in a press release: "Years ago a friend of mine gave me a VHS tape of the MTV show 120 Minutes. It's something I'd get him to do every so often as I was a bit obsessed with music TV at the time. On one particular tape was the video for 'Sonne' by Rammstein, I'd never seen them before and it blew my mind. This video is a sort of homage to that, but with an added story about the gentrification of ice cream parlors."
