Fischerspooner previously announced that a new album, Sir, was on the way this fall, but it’s now been officially announced as a February 16, 2018 release via Ultra. The duo (Casey Spooner and Warren Fischer), who survived the early 2000s electro-clash label, haven’t released an album since 2009’s Entertainment. Today they have shared a video for a new song, “Togetherness.” The song features the guest vocals of Caroline Polachek, of the recently broken up Chairlift. She also appears in the sexually charged video, which was directed by the band’s Warren Fischer. Watch it below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

Former R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe produced Sir (he and Spooner briefly dated in the late ‘80s) and also co-wrote the album with Spooner. Sir was recorded in Athens, GA, and also features additional production by BOOTS and mixing by Stuart White and Andy LeMaster. A press release has this to say about the album: “The highly-personal album chronicles the dissolution of Casey’s 14-year romantic relationship and simultaneously acts a means of resistance towards popular conservative ideals today through its unabashed queerness.”
