White Denim will return this fall with new album Corsicana Lemonade, the long-awaited follow-up to 2011's outstanding D. The Austin foursome's fifth full-length is scheduled to arrive on October 29 courtesy of Downtown Records. Described by the band's camp as a "rollicking 10-song mission statement," the upcoming LP features production on two tracks and a full mix from Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy.

Back in March, White Denim holed up in Wilco's Loft headquarters/studio in Chicago to record with the Yankee Hotel Foxtrot mastermind and his frequent producing partner, Tom Schick (Rufus Wainwright, Ryan Adams). After wrapping work on a pair of tunes, frontman James Petralli and co. returned to their home state of Texas, built their own studio at a house on a cliff (seriously), and tracked the rest of the album with local music legend Jim Vollentine.

Aside from that pseudo-mythic origin story, White Denim have also shared the impending record's first single. "Pretty Green" bleeds garage-blues swagger into space-psych sonics, bookending scuffed up guitar-work with boundless atmospherics. Sample the track via the stop-motion lyric video below. Scroll further for a teaser trailer stuffed with rehearsal footage, Corsicana Lemonade cover art and track list, and White Denim's current tour dates (Austin City Limits festival slot included).
