Following last year’s The Carpenter, The Avett Brothers have announced that they will release a new album titled Magpie and the Dandelion this fall. Due out Oct. 15 via Republic, the album was once again produced by frequent collaborator Rick Rubin.

In a press release the band says “If you think about a Magpie, it’s a bird from the crow family. You can see them everywhere, and they’ve got this strange grace. And, we all know what a dandelion is. It reminds you of being a kid and watching a flower come apart on a summer day. There’s a youthful wonder in that. Those kinds of feelings live and breathe inside this album.”

Giving fans a taste of the upcoming LP, NPR is streaming the LP first single “Another Is Waiting.” The band has also announced a new tour, the dates of which can be found below.

The band has a number of upcoming tour dates schedule with even more still to be announced.
