We’re happy to report that Shirley Manson and Garbage are quite active these days, and will release a new album, No Gods No Masters, on June 11. It will be the band’s seventh studio album to date and the follow-up to 2016’s Strange Little Birds, so it’s been a long time coming.

If you were wondering if the band lost any of its stylish edge over the years, well, the answer is a resounding “no.” Here’s Garbage’s new music video for the title track, which was premiered on Wednesday:

It’s the second song shared thus far from the album, following “The Men Who Rule the World,” which premiered along with the album news:

Said Manson of the new record in a statement:

“This is our seventh record, the significant numerology of which affected the DNA of its content: the seven virtues, the seven sorrows, and the seven deadly sins. It was our way of trying to make sense of how fucking nuts the world is and the astounding chaos we find ourselves in. It’s the record we felt that we had to make at this time. Major thanks and kudos to the genius Chilean artist and film director Javi Miamor for the incredible visual accompaniment to our brand new song!”

A Deluxe Edition of the album will include a bonus disc featuring a collection of the band’s much loved covers released in the last eight years for Record Store Day, featuring Brody Dalle, Brian Aubert, Screaming Females and John Doe & Exene Cervenka as well as a cover of Bowie’s “Starman.”

And more about how the new record came about:

Produced by Garbage and long-time collaborator Billy Bush, the seeds for No Gods No Masters were planted in summer 2018 in the desert in Palm Springs. The quartet – Manson and bandmates Duke Erikson, Steve Marker and Butch Vig – convened at a home belonging to one of Marker’s relatives and sketched out the skeleton of the album over two weeks, jamming, experimenting and feeling the songs out. They then took those demos and went their separate ways before connecting in Los Angeles to finish the record.
