Of Montreal, the project of Kevin Barnes, have announced a new album, UR FUN, and shared its first single, "Peace to All Freaks." UR FUN is due out January 17, 2020 via Polyvinyl. Check out "Peace to All Freaks" below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as of Montreal's upcoming tour dates.

UR FUN is the follow-up to 2018's White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood. A press release says that the album is inspired by Barnes' relationship with songwriter Christina Schnieder of Locate S,1. Musical inspirations include Cyndi Lauper's She's So Unusual and Janet Jackson's Control, in that Barnes set out to have every song on the album a catchy single. Barnes recorded the album in his home studio in Athens, Georgia.

In the press release Barnes says "Peace to All Freaks" is a "protest song against totalitarianism, familial terrorism, and wastefulness in all its forms."
