In addition to the album news shared on Thursday, the band premiered two songs from the album as previews of the new material. Here’s a music video for “The Bandit,” which sounds in the same vein as some of the group’s most well-known material. In the clip, the band members are seen in black-and-white performing the song on stage, with front man Caleb Folowill delivering lines like this:

And they’re walking around
With their heads in the cloud screaming
Must catch the bandit
Reckless abandon
Rundown and stranded
Must catch the bandit

And here’s the slow-burning “100,000 People,”

The album was recorded in Nashville at Blackbird Studios, with the assistance of producer Markus Dravs (who has worked previously with acts including Coldplay, Arcade Fire, and Florence + the Machine).
