Japandroids recently announced a new album, Near to the Wild Heart of Life, via a short announcement video. Now they have shared the album’s title track and confirmed more details about the album, including that it’s due out January 27, 2017 via ANTI-. Below is “Near to the Wild Heart of Life,” followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

The album was written throughout 2014 and 2015 in Vancouver, Toronto, New Orleans, and Mexico City and mainly recorded by Jesse Gander (who had previously recorded both Post-Nothing and Celebration Rock) at Rain City Recorders in Vancouver, BC in 2015.

The album is the follow-up to 2012’s Celebration Rock and their first for ANTI- (previously they were on Polyvinyl).
