Passion Pit have debuted a brand new track, which you can listen to exclusively below.

'I'll Be Alright' is the second track to be taken from the electro-pop wonderkid Michael Angelakos’ second album 'Gossamer', which is slated for release on July 23. It is the follow up to 2009's 'Manners' and 2008's 'Chunk Of Change' EP.

Speaking to NME, Michael Angelakos said that 'Gossamer' is a departure from the band's last record: "I didn't think that 'Manners' did Passion Pit justice. 'Manners' did some great things, but I feel like we could have gone so much further. I could have explored my songwriting abilities more." He added:

I needed to talk about personal things on this record; I needed to do it in a way that was interesting and I wanted to do it in a way that would excite the listener with different sounds and different worlds and different movements. It moves like an opera.



'Gossamer', he says, is a more "expansive" collection of songs than 'Manners': "If it feels like one song is drastically different from another who cares? I just really wanted to make a collection of good songs, the kind of album that harps back to the '90s… Everybody now wants new songs to sound the same and I really dislike that."

'Gossamer' was recorded in 2011 in Los Angeles and New York City, and again finds Angelakos working with 'Manners' producer Chris Zane. So far, the band’s only UK live dates confirmed are this summer, at Reading and Leeds Festivals on August 24 and 25.
