Critically acclaimed alt-pop band The New Pornographers have released their new album Whiteout Conditions. It is the first release on their own Collected Works Records imprint in partnership with Concord Records. See below for a complete track list. A new tour gets underway this week. Tickets for all U.S. shows include a free download of the new album; also see below for a complete list of dates.

Of writing the new record, founder and frontman A.C. Newman notes that, “At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesn’t sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Let’s try and rock in a different way.”

Since their debut in 2000, The New Pornographers have released six studio albums including their most recent, Brill Bruisers.

1. Play Money
2. Whiteout Conditions
