Britpop band Sleeper have announced their first album in 21 years, The Modern Age, and shared its first single, “Look At You Now.” The album is due out March 22, 2019 via the band’s own label, Gorsky Records (no doubt named after their song “Good Luck Mr. Gorsky”). Check out the song below, followed by the album’s cover art and the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Sleeper may have not been the biggest of the 1990s Britpop bands (such as Pulp, Blur, Oasis, and Suede), but they had a strong following, eight Top 40 UK singles (including two that made the Top 10), and all three of their previous albums went Top 10 in the UK, with their first two debuting at #5. They also covered Blondie’s “Atomic” for the Trainspotting soundtrack, one of the most iconic soundtracks of the 1990s. The band split up in 1998 following the release of their 1997-released third album, Pleased to Meet You. Frontwoman Louise Wener had a successful writing career post-Sleeper, writing four novels and a 2010 autobiography. The band reformed in 2017 for some shows and another tour earlier this year.
