The Head And The Heart have announced that their fourth studio LP, Living Mirage, is due out on May 17th. The news was accompanied by the first single and lyric video from the LP, “Missed Connection,” which arrived on Thursday (March 14th).

The band revealed that the song began as a remembrance of how singer and guitarist Jon Russell met his girlfriend — but then morphed into a metaphor of how the six-member band happened to meet at an open-mic night 10 years ago in Seattle.

Bassist Chris Zasche described the new album as a “rebirth” for the band, which went through some changes in its lineup in recent years. Founding guitarist Josiah Johnson is no longer with the band, while keyboardist Kenny Hensley also departed.

Living Mirage was recorded in various places around the U.S., including California’s Joshua Tree, Appleton, Wisconsin, West Seattle, Nashville and Los Angeles. The 11-song disc follows up 2016’s Signs Of Light, which featured the Number One single “All We Ever Knew.”

There will also be a “major announcement” at that time about their plans for a summer and fall North American tour.
