Deerhunter are releasing a new album next month titled Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?. It will be their eighth studio album, following up on 2015’s Fading Frontier. Today, the Bradford Cox-led band have shared the second single from the record, “Element.” The idiosyncratic song features unique, semi-psychedelic instrumentation and is described by Cox as “an elegy for ecology (a landscape done in toxic watercolors).” It follows last month’s more straightforward and dreamy lead single “Death in Midsummer.”

Listen to “Element” below.
