Less than a month after releasing its first song in more than five years, indie experimental outfit Grizzly Bear has announced its fifth studio album, Painted Ruins. To mark the occasion, the band dropped a new song today, debuting “Mourning Sound” on its YouTube page. Oddly chipper despite its title and dreamy vibe, it’s a welcome reminder of what we’ve been missing since Shields hit stores back in 2012.

The band also announced an international tour in support of the album, which arrives on August 18. The tour will kick off in October in Ireland, before making its way over to North America for an autumn-winter run of shows. You can see the full schedule below.
