It's only Wednesday morning, but have we already just found our Song of the Week? British five-piece The Horrors have shared a new song, "Something to Remember Me By," the expansive closing track to their forthcoming new album, V. It almost sounds like The Horrors mashed up with Cut Copy, with all the euphoric electronic overtones, and it's probably the most dance-y song they've done. That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you end an album. Listen below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

The Horrors are releasing their fifth album, the fittingly titled V, on September 22 via Wolftone/Caroline. Previously they shared its first single "Machine," as well as a video for "Machine."

Paul Epworth (London Grammar, Florence and the Machine, Bloc Party, Adele) produced V at the Church Studios, in North London. It's the follow-up to 2014's Luminous.

A previous press release promised that the album is diverse and that the band refuses "to stand still." As lead singer Faris Badwan puts it in the press release: "It is a risk. But life isn't much fun without risk. It's the antithesis of being creative if you know what you're going to be doing every time."

Keyboardist Tom Cowan added in the press release: "It's natural, if you do see yourself as an artist, to progress and not play it safe. Bowie pre-empted the modern condition of not being able to stay in one place for very long, and I get frustrated with bands who stay still. Because then it does become a career."

Bassist Rhys Webb also had this to say: "When we started, we had a very clear idea of what we wanted to do, which was to make as furious a noise as possible, a fast and violent racket. But even though we started with this punky garage sound there was always this real spirit of wanting to experiment and explore."
