Passion Pit

Passion Pit recently announced that their third album, Kindred, would be out in April via Columbia, and now more details have been revealed. Frontman Michael Angelakos produced it with longtime collaborators and co-producers Chris Zane and Alex Aldi, with contributions from hitmaker Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Jessie Ware). The official release date is April 21, the tracklist is below, and so is a stream of the first single, “Lifted Up (1985).” It’s an arena-ready synth pop anthem, but distinctly the kind that still no one makes quite like Passion Pit. If you pre-order the album on iTunes, you get an instant download of “Lifted Up (1985)” plus a second track, “Where the Sky Hangs.”

The band also have tour dates coming up, and they’ll be nearby NYC for Radio 105.4’s Birthday show on May 10 at Susquehanna Bank Center with Death Cab for Cutie and others. That’s now sold out.

All dates are listed, with the new song stream, below…

Tracklist:
1. Lifted Up (1985)
2. Whole Life Story
3. Where the Sky Hangs
4. All I Want
5. Five Foot Ten (I)
6. Dancing on the Grave
7. Until We Can’t (Let’s Go)
8. Looks Like Rain
9. My Brother Taught Me How To Swim
10. Ten Feet Tall (II)
