Built To Spill have shared details of their first album in seven years, ‘When The Wind Forgets Your Name’ alongside the release of new single, ‘Gonna Lose’, and tour dates – buy tickets here.

The Idaho band’s last album was 2015’s ‘Untethered Moon’. ‘When The Wind Forgets Your Name’, the group’s first release through Sub Pop, arrives on September 9.

‘Gonna Lose’ is the first taste of the band’s new record, which is accompanied by a psychedelic animated video directed by Jordan Minkoff and animated by him and Lee McClure. Watch it below.

Per Pitchfork, the album was produced by the band’s guitarist/lead vocalist Doug Martsch, who also mixed the album with Lê Almeida, João Casaes and Josh Lewis. The collaboration between Martsch, Almeida and Casaes began during some Brazilian tour dates.

“’Making When the Wind Forgets Your Name’ was such a great experience,” Martsch said in a statement. “I had an incredible time traveling and recording with Almeida and Casaes. I also learned so much about Brazilian culture and music while creating it.

“My Portuguese was terrible when I first met Almeida and Casaes, but by the end of the year it was even worse.”
