Telekinesis (the project of Seattle-based singer/songwriter/drummer Michael Benjamin Lerner) has announced a new album, Effluxion, and shared a lyric video for its first single, "Set a Course." He's also announced some tour dates. Effluxion is due out February 22, 2019 via Merge. Listen to "Set a Course" below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as the tour dates.

Effluxion is Telekinesis' fifth album, the follow-up to 2015's Ad Infinitum. Effluxion comes from the Latin term meaning "to flow." While on previous albums he worked with Death Cab for Cutie's Chris Walla and Spoon's Jim Eno as producers, Lerner self-produced Effluxion, recording it in his basement home studio and playing every instrument. The album was influenced by his time in 2017 as a touring member of Teenage Fanclub, leading him to a more back-to-basics sound as opposed to the drum machine-led Ad Infinitum.
