Metronomy are releasing a new album, Summer 08, on July1 via Because Music. Previously the British band shared the album’s first single, “Old Skool,” as well as a video for the song. Now the band, led by main creative force Joseph Mount, have shared another song from the album, “Night Owl.” It’s another catchy slice of nostalgic electro-pop. Listen below.

Summer 08 was written, recorded, and produced entirely by Mount. “Old Skool” features scratching from Beastie Boys’ Mix Master Mike and Robyn duets on “Hang Me Out to Dry” (an early version of the track was recorded for their 2011 album The English Rivera, this version was mixed by Erol Alkan). Mount says he recorded most of the album over the course of two weeks last year and it finds him returning to the process that brought forth his 2008 breakthrough record Nights Out, which was followed by the Mercury Prize-nominated The English Rivera and 2014’s Love Letters. Summer 08 was recorded in Black Box Studios in France and was mixed by Bob Clearmountain (David Bowie) and Neal Pogue (OutKast). The press release compares it to Bowie and OutKast, as well as Daft Punk.
