Wolf Parade have announced a new album, Thin Mind, and shared a new song from it, "Forest Green," via a lyric video for the track. They have also announced some new 2020 tour dates. Thin Mind is due out January 24, 2020 via Sub Pop. It includes "Against the Day," a new song the band shared in October via a video (it was one of our Songs of the Week). Check out "Forest Green" below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as their upcoming tour dates and "Against the Day" again.

Thin Mind is the follow-up to Wolf Parade's 2017 reunion album Cry Cry Cry. The band's current lineup is Dan Boeckner, Spencer Krug, and Arlen Thompson, after multi-instrumentalist Dante DeCaro amicably left the band in 2018 when their touring for Cry Cry Cry was complete. John Goodmanson produced Thin Mind at Risque Disque on Vancouver Island, BC. Goodmanson mixed the album at Bogroll Studios in Seattle and Noah Mintz mastered it at Lacquer Channel Mastering in Toronto. The album is out on Sub Pop worldwide, apart from Canada, where it's out on Royal Mountain Records.

Krug had this to say about the album in a press release: "Thin Mind refers to the way that being around too much tech has made our focus thin."

Boeckner adds: "It's opening one more page, scrolling one more thing, and the weird, sort-of hollow automaton feeling that you get from it."

Thompson further explains: "This record is very personal, but at the same time, we're all coming from the same place of a general sense of anxiety. How do you deal with the constant barrage of having your opinions swayed by all these different actors when you don't know who they are or what their purpose is? There is no normal anymore."
