When we last heard from Little Dragon in February, they were announcing tour dates for the spring. In that post we expressed our desire for an album announcement, and the band must have heard us. Today the group released information on their new LP Season High and shared a music video for their new single “Sweet.”

The song begins with foreboding breathing and singular electronic tones. The creepy intro then gives way to a richly full electronic dance track, all short beeps and synthetic flair behind Yukimi Nagano. The video is part alien invasion, part religious experience, part dance party, and part computer animation. That description may sound weird and eclectic, but its nothing compared to watching the video for yourself. Here’s what we’re talking about:

Season High will be the Little Dragon’s fifth studio album. It’s set to release on April 14, just in time for that tour we told you about earlier. Pre-orders for the album are available now. If you missed the tour dates the first time around, we’ve included them again below.
