It’s been four years since the New Pornographers released an album. But on Aug. 26 they’ll return with their sixth record, ‘Brill Bruisers.’

To mark the occasion, the Canadian indie pop-rock collective has put together some interactive art to accompany the title track to the album. You can listen to the song, and play around, right here:

The new record will feature 12 tracks produced by frontman AC Newman and bassist John Collins. “This is a celebration record,” Newman said. “After periods of difficulty, I am at a place where nothing in my life is dragging me down, and the music reflects that.”

And it looks like Neko Case is once again on board, since her name is listed in the press release as a band member. So that’s good news.
