There’s a steady, hypnotic rhythm to “A Cut Inside,” a new song from English rock mainstays The Cult that the band premiered on Wednesday.

It’s the second track shared in preview of Under the Midnight Sun, a new record due out on Oct. 7. Trip out below:

The track joins “Give Me Mercy,” which accompanied the album announcement and finds vocalist Ian Astbury, guitarist Billy Duffy and the band in classic form:

The album’s track listing:

A Cut Inside
Vendetta X
Give Me Mercy
Outer Heaven
Knife Through Butterfly Heart
Under The Midnight Sun

The scope of Under the Midnight Sun is one of focus, per a news release, Astbury hoping that the record connects to something deep within and subconscious in their listeners—something Astbury found within himself when given the moment to look for it. “At the core of it all, music contains the vibrational frequency of how we once communicated before we could even speak,” he says. “Bird songs, animal calls, string theory, quantum physics, psychedelics. The record ultimately is about finding and uniting beauty in those strangely natural moments.”
