After indulging his sporty side with last year’s cricket-themed, Duckworth Lewis Method, Neil Hannon is back with a new Divine Comedy album, Bang Goes the Knighthood (out in the U.K. May 31st, Stateside June).

Says Hannon via press release of the album’s first single, the unlikely-titled “At the Indie Disco,” “I thought I was writing a catchy little pop song for kids. Then a friend said it really took them back to their dim and distant youth. Turns out I’m a social historian.” Not a surprising statement for fans who have followed the colorful characters populating his nine previous releases.

Track List:

1. Down In The Street Below
2. The Complete Banker
3. Neapolitan Girl
4. Bang Goes The Knighthood
5. At The Indie Disco
6. Have You Ever Been In Love
7. Assume the Perpendicular
8. The Lost Art of Conversation
9. Island Life
10. When A Man Cries
11. Can You Stand Upon One Leg
12. I Like
