Erasure returns this summer with its first new record in three years and the duo’s 18th studio album overall, a 10-track collection called The Neon that is preceded by the bright pop single “Hey Now (Think I Got a A Feeling)” — which you can hear below.

The album will be released by Mute on Aug. 21 in all digital formats as well as standard and deluxe-editions of vinyl, CD and cassette, according to the label.

Andy Bell and Vince Clarke came together together in Atlanta to record vocals for the album, and the duo mixed the record earlier this year in London. According to the label, the project found the two returning to work together “with a fresh optimism and energy, in part born from their own recent personal projects” and a focus on classic pop sounds.

Clarke says: “Our music is always a reflection of how we’re feeling. Andy was in a good place spiritually, and so was I – really good places in our minds. You can hear that.”

Below, hear the new single and see the album’s tracklist and cover art.
