The Mynabirds Detail New Album, “Lovers Know,” Share New Track, “Semantics”

Announcing her third studio album Lovers Know earlier this spring, The Mynabirds, aka Laura Burhenn, has now revealed the full details of the forthcoming record. The follow-up to her 2012 sophomore LP, Generals, the new LP is slated to come out Aug. 7 via Saddle Creek, and explores the "futuristic soundscapes" of artists such as Kate Bush, Sinead O'Connor, Jesus and Mary Chain, and My Bloody Valentine, according to a press release.

In anticipation of the album's release, Burhenn has shared the included single, "Semantics." "Have you heard about the Buddhist monks who meditated on polluted water molecules?," Burhenn asks. "The molecules changed from sad, brown amorphous things into beautiful geometric shapes that looked genuinely happy. That's pretty much what this song is about. Long love is tough and it takes a lot of effort. It gets bent out of shape, and brown and a little amorphous over time. So in ‘Semantics' I'm asking, "Does it matter what we call things, what we call 'Us'? And yeah, it does. It can change everything. If we call love something beautiful, if we put the energy into it being that, we can transform into that."

In addition to the new track, Burhenn has also shared the album's cover art (pictured) and tracklist (below). Scroll down to listen to "Semantics."
