The Canadian indie titans Wolf Parade have returned today with a brand new track ‘Julia Take Your Man Home’ ahead of their upcoming new record Thin Man which arrives on January 24th via Sub Pop.
The fifth album from the band has already seen the releases of ‘Forest Green’ and ‘Against The Day’ and now the Spencer Krug-fronted band have shared another reason to be excited about this new album, with some of the most delicious lyrics we’ve heard in a very long time.
With lines like “Julia, take your man home, he’s just sitting at the bar / carving shapes that look like dicks into the wood”’, the new song is a socially wry and frighteningly accurate depiction of male ignorance, “I’m singing about some other, worse version of myself. It’s not actually me.” Krug says. “I’ve never carved shapes that look like dicks into anything.”
That inclination of dive bar douchebags is backed by a synth-flecked post-punk sound. It rings out like the sultry and surly dancefloor, sticky with spilled drinks and the underbelly of society. It’s a show of the record to come. Listen to ‘Julia Take Your Man Home’ below:
Thin Mind is now available for pre-order worldwide from Sub Pop and Wolf Parade’s official webstore. The album packaging is a real treat for collectors and features artwork from comic book artists Simon Roy and Hayleyglyphs throughout.
Meanwhile, LP pre-orders in the UK and Europe through select independent retailers will receive the limited Loser edition on yellow vinyl (while supplies last). There will also be a new T-shirt design available.
