Danish experimental rockers Mew will release their seventh album, “Visuals” On April 28th. You can check out the video for its closing track, “Carry Me to Safety,” .

“I just like how it twists and turns,” front man Jonas Bjerre said in a press release. “It’s a reflection on life and being in a band, what it means to be in a band, dedicating so many years of your life to this thing.”

Although the band usually takes three or four years between records, Visuals comes only two years after 2015’s + –. But as they were touring in support of that release, they found a burst of creativity and began creating demos while still on the road. “We just felt like, ‘if we do it the normal way, it’s gonna be another three or four years before we get to do it again’,” he continued. “If you keep doing it like that, ultimately you make a handful of albums and then you’re ready for retirement.”

They tracked Visuals in Copenhagen, and in keeping with the pace with which they wrote the materials, completed it in less than a year. Bjerre added that working quickly caused them to rely more on their instincts than previous efforts. “Spending less time on it, you can still maintain the feeling you had when you first wrote it, and you don’t get stuck in the quagmire of second-guessing yourself all the time,” he said.

Mew will tour Europe for 10 days in May,
