Former Commotions leader Lloyd Cole this week debuted the first music from Standards, a new 11-track album that finds the singer-songwriter reuniting with part of the team — Matthew Sweet on bass and co-producer/drummer Fred Maher — behind Cole’s 1990 self-titled solo debut. The Kim Frank-directed video for wistful lead single “Period Piece,” which premiered at The Guardian, also stars Cole’s son William, seemingly playing a younger version of his father.

Standards is due out June 21 in Europe and June 24 in the U.K. on Tapete Records.
