Band of Horses have announced their upcoming fifth album, Why Are You OK, set for release this June, according to Entertainment WeeklyProduced by Grandaddy’s Jason Lytle, the album follows 2012’s Mirage Rock. 

Band of Horses staged an elaborate scavenger hunt at Austin’s South by Southwest festival last week to tease the album, scattering polaroids around the city labeled #YRUOK. Although no track list has been revealed, the opening track, ‘Dull Times,” is reportedly seven minutes long.

Frontman Ben Bridwell told EW that he wrote many of the demos for the new record in the middle of the night so he could be a good dad to his four children. “I work all night and then take them to school in the morning,” he said. “I’m the f—ing scariest dad in the school, I’m sure.”

Last year, Bridwell teamed up with Iron & Wine‘s Sam Beam for a covers album called Sing Into My Mouth. And this week marks the tenth anniversary of the band’s debut, Everything All the Time.
