Frankie Cosmos have announced a new collection of digital-only singles titled Haunted Items. The Greta Kline-led band plan to release the songs in weekly installments through April 3. Today, they’ve shared the first two songs, “Dancing” and “Tunnel,” a pair of stripped-down piano-based tracks.

Kline says this about Haunted Items:

Items themselves are harmless unless they are infused with some kind of energy. These items are haunted by fear, consumerism, commitment, love, loss, the list goes on…I had some of these songs stuck inside me, mostly because I wrote a lot of them for piano and didn’t know how to record them, even as demos. My friend Elia gifted me with 10 hours of recording time with Mark Yoshizumi, and this winter felt like the perfect opportunity to get these out of my system and haunt you with them instead. I have always been afraid of items being haunted, but when you think about it, every item is, right?

The release follows last year’s studio album Vessel, the third record from the band. Below, listen to “Dancing” and “Tunnel” and watch Frankie Cosmos’ KEXP in-studio performance from last year.
