Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos has revealed that the band's new album sounds so "beautiful" that they want to release it "when the buds start to bloom" next year.

Speaking in a video interview with NME, which you can watch on the right now, Angelakos said he has already started work on the follow-up to the group's 2009 debut 'Manners'.

"It's gonna be a really fantastic, exciting, beautiful, gorgeous record," Angelakos said. "An absolutely beautiful record. I'm so excited.

"We're aligning it with the Farmers' Almanac in America, so when the buds start to bloom is when we kind of wanna release it. Like when life starts to come back. We wanna be pretty literal."

He added that he's preparing "several editions" of the album for release.
