The shoegaze-y pop outfit The Raveonettes chose Valetine’s Day to finally set a date for the release of Raven in the Grave. The band’s fifth studio album will drop April 5 on Vice Records. According to guitarist Sune Rose Wagner, audiophiles can expect “a very un-Rave album.”

“This is the first Raveonettes album we’ve done which doesn’t feature the signature Raveonettes surf drumbeat,” Wagner said in the band’s press release. “None of the tunes have any real sunshine to them.”

Yet dark doesn’t always mean bleak. Newly released single “Forget That You’re Young”—which was unveiled today via free digital download—shows that the band has cleaned up their fuzz and uncovered a melodic elegance that’s haunting in its lucidity. Download “Forget That You’re Young” here and get lost in its dark beauty.
