Parquet Courts have shared "Outside" from their forthcoming album Human Performance. It's the shortest song on the album (an economical 1:47) and one of the catchier numbers, too. (This is by far their most hook-forward album, to my ears.) Have a listen, via Spotify, below, and the LP is out April 8 via Rough Trade.

UPDATE: The band have just announced a record release show that happens April 8 at The Bell House with Rips. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (3/25) at noon.

For fans in NYC, the band have set up an old-school newspaper box outside the Wyckoff Starr (right by that Human Performance mural) which contains a Showpaper like fold-out with the lyrics from the album and coupons for $2 off the album and $1 off coffee from the Wyckoff Starr (and a chance to win tickets to their Webster Hall show), as well as a nice Human Performance poster. Pictures (via Reddit) are below. Head over to the Wyckoff Starr to pick yours up (while supplies last).

If you don't want to count on winning your way into Parquet Courts' show at Webster Hall on May 20 with B Boys, tickets are still available.
