The Radio Dept. return with their first new album since 2010's Clinging To A Scheme on October 21st. The highly anticipated album Running Out Of Love features the band's signature dreampoppy, danceable hooks and politically charged lyrics. The lyrics were inspired by their (now resolved) legal battle with their record label, as well as their increasing disenchantment with Swedish politics. As they've revealed in a previous statement, Running Out Of Love was "created in a sense of deep frustration over the reactionary currents which characterize our time," but yet the album manages to be quite uplifting and marvelous.
Today The Radio Dept premiered Running Out Of Love in full ahead of its release -- stream all ten tracks in full over at NPR.
Pre-order Running Out Of Love from iTunes, Amazon, or the Labrador webstore.
