Recently, the band shared a video for the album track “Nocturne Child.”

Daniel Romano on “Nocturne Child:”

What is a secret, what is a dream?
What is the truth and the in-between?
Outfit is cryptic, Outfit is shifty,
Outfit is shrouded in mystery.
Bring us wisdom, private seeds
bring us paintings, bring us sight,
bring us fruits and jewelry
Bring us the children of the night.

Lyrics:
NOCTURNE CHILD

Standing in the alleyway
Looking for a light
Gripping to a weapon
That could put you outta sight
Don’t got no graduation
Don’t got no suit and tie
But if you got a sucker
I can make the sucker cry

Come on
I’m only a nocturne child, sweet baby
Only a nocturne child
I’ll be gone in the blink of an eye, pretty mama
Look out I‘m running wild
Nocturne child

Don’t got no grace or dignity
I’m heavy on my feet
I’d kill the son of god for a little bite to eat
I never made it anywhere
I never had a chance
I’ve never held a candle
But I can sing and I can dance

Clap hands
Nocturne child
I’m only a nocturne child, sweet baby
Only a nocturne child
I’ll be gone in the blink of an eye, pretty mama
Look out, I‘m running wild
Nocturne child

Keep it under 29
Nothing left to lose
Moving like a housebreaker down the avenue
Gimme milk and honey baby
Gimme something quick
As steamy as it is
It ain’t ever gonna stick

Come on
Nocturne child
I’m only a nocturne child, sweet baby
Only a nocturne child
I’ll be gone in the blink of an eye, pretty mama
Look out
Nocturne child
