Boston duo Vundabar (Brandon Hagen and Drew McDonald) have announced a new album, Either Light, and have shared its first single, "Burned Off," via a playful video for the track. Either Light is due out March 13 via Gawk. Check out the Hagen-directed "Burned Off" video below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as the band's upcoming tour dates.

Either Light is the follow-up to 2018's Smell Smoke and finds the band working with a producer for the first time, Patrick Hyland (Mitski).

Hagen had this to say about Either Light in a press release: "The album is about the transitional lightness that follows a period of heaviness. After years of being caught up in a dark period marked by sickness, strife and worry, and using it as the context in which I saw myself, I suddenly found I'd outgrown that story. With that came a feeling of lightness that was opposite the feeling which preceded it."

Hagen also had this to say about the single: "'Burned Off' details time spent waiting out a low. It's bad, it's bad, it's bad, then it's not, it burns off. The song explores that surreal and sometimes inexplicable moment of interior shift, the fog lifting, and the way our internal state informs our external experience. It could turn light into a puddle or a puddle into light, but then it burns off! Temporary and dual. We see our protagonist wet, we see our protagonist dry, we see our protagonist ruminating and then looking to the future, finally finding solace in the ephemeral, the chorus a reassurance of what's now known."
