Brooklyn based synth-pop duo Holy Ghost! have announced their newest album, Work and shared the album’s closing track “Escape From Los Angeles.” The album is due out via New York City disco label West End Records on June 21 and is the first release of original music from the label in over three decades. Check out the track, album art, and tracklist below, followed by some upcoming tour dates.

Work is the group’s third studio album, following their 2013 release Dynamics. The album features the tracks “Epton on Broadway (Part I & Part II)” and “Anxious” which previously was featured on our Songs of the Week back in October. Partially inspired by the minimalist tech that generated such albums as Bowie’s iconic Low, the group simplified their gear down to only two synths: a Yamaha CS80 and a Mini Moog.

Featured on the cover of Work is a piece by Agnes Denes titled Wheatfield - A Confrontation: Battery Park Landfill, Downtown Manhattan – The Harvest, 1982. In a statement on the album’s press release Alex Frankel said:

We’ve been obsessed with images of The Harvest for years, explains Frankel. On a purely visual level, its infinitely surreal and beautiful. On a more conceptual level, as artists born in NYC the same year the field was planted, we’ve been drawn to it as statement about the value of process: You simply make something here, you plant the field, you do the “work”, and then over time its meaning changes shapes along with the city and world around it. We are eternally grateful to Agnes for giving us this image to use as the cover for our third full-length album. And we could not be more proud to be releasing this album on West End Records
