Mogwai has announced a new album, Every Country's Sun, and shared its first single, and opening track, "Coolverine." Every Country's Sun is due out September 1 via Temporary Residence Inc. Check out the song below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as their upcoming U.S. tour dates.

Every Country's Sun is the first Mogwai album without John Cummings, who left in late 2015. The lineup is now Stuart Braithwaite (guitar, vocals), Barry Burns (keyboards, computer, guitar), Dominic Aitchison (bass), and Martin Bulloch (drums). A press release describes the album as such: "This is music as a keep-out chrysalis, protective audio armor through exalting organs and portentous, dissonant guitar fuzz warping at the edges, bending the world inside-out into a reality in which you'd much rather live."

Braithwaite had this to say about the album in a press release: "What's going on in the world politically and socially has to affect you. It was very much on our minds, especially in America. We were vaguely getting over the Scottish referendum, then the death of David Bowie, along comes Brexit, and then Trump. The album was written in a very turbulent, intense period so I think it maybe feels like some kind of shield from that? That's maybe just my take. Because it literally was for me."
