The Drums' new album Abysmal Thoughts will be out June 16 via ANTI-. This is the first Drums record in a while that was entirely from the mind of Jonny Pierce -- with production by Eaters' Jonathan Schenke -- and while he's still working with the same general template, Abysmal Thoughts sounds fresh and energized. They've just shared new single "Heart Basel" and Jonny talks a little about it:

I went through the most significant breakup of my life during the making of "Abysmal Thoughts." During that vulnerable period, I attached myself to this guy who did not care at all for my feelings, but was good at pretending that he did. In retrospect, I think I knew deep down that he didn't give a shit about me. But I continued to let him treat me like garbage because I thought if I had this handsome guy with me that somehow I wasn't doing too bad. Of course now - with some professional help - I see that I was just lacking self-love and while it's unhealthy to stay in that headspace for very long, it does make for good songwriting. 'Heart Basel' is a song about him treating me 'kindly' at Art Basel in Miami and then treating me like garbage after he got what he needed. You live and you sometimes learn.

Listen to "Heart Basel" below.
