Passion Pit have posted their comeback single 'Take A Walk', online. Scroll down to listen to the track.

The song is the first to be taken from their brand new album, 'Gossamer', which will be released on July 23.

The follow-up to their 2009 debut 'Manners', is 12 tracks long and will come ahead of their only UK live dates currently set for this summer, at Reading and Leeds Festivals on August 24 and 25. The band tour North America this summer, with appearances at Japan's Summer Sonic Festival also scheduled.

The electropop band first spoke to NME about their second album in 2010, when Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos revealed that the band's next album was "gonna be a really fantastic, exciting, beautiful, gorgeous record. An absolutely beautiful record. I'm so excited."

He added: "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." Angelakos also said he was preparing "several editions" of the album for release.
