Brand New have released ‘Science Fiction’, their first album since 2009.

Earlier today, fans reported receiving mysterious CD copies of what appeared to be a new record in the mail. The band have since released an official download of the album.


As Spin reports, the record is not yet available on streaming services. It was produced by the band’s longtime collaborator Mike Sapone and features 12 tracks in total.

The tracklisting for ‘Science Fiction’ is as follows:

‘Lit Me Up’
‘Can’t Get It Out’
‘Same Logic/Teeth’
‘Could Never Be Heaven’
‘Out of Mana’
‘In the Water’
‘No Control’
‘Batter Up’

A “very limited” vinyl pre-order quickly sold out when the record was announced earlier this week, but no details such as tracklisting or album title were confirmed at the time. A fixed release date wasn’t announced either, with a tweet from the band’s account just stating the pre-orders would ship in October.
