Montreal collective the Dears have announced plans to release their third studio album, Gang of Losers (out October 3), and they’re already granting fans a sneak peek at the album’s stripped-down sound by dropping lead single “Ticket to Immortality.” On it, frontman Murray Lightburn boasts breathily, “I hang out with all the pariahs,” but his band’s bridges and breakdowns are so subtly melodic, it’d be hard to believe Lightburn has an ego to accompany his immortality.
