Wolf Alice has announced a new album called Blue Weekend.

The third studio effort from the “Moaning Lisa Smile” rockers will arrive June 11. You can listen to the lead single “The Last Man on Earth” now via digital platforms.

In a statement, frontwoman Ellie Rowsell says “The Last Man on Earth” is about the “the arrogance of humans.”

“I’d just read Kurt Vonnegut‘s Cat’s Cradle and I had written the line ‘Peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from god’ in my notes,” Rowsell recalls. “But then I thought: ‘Uh, your peculiar travel suggestion isn’t a dancing lesson from god, it’s just a travel suggestion! Why does everything need to mean something more?'”

Here’s the Blue Weekend track list:

“The Beach”
“Delicious Things”
“Lipstick on the Glass”
“Smile”
“Safe from Heartbreak (if you never fall in love)”
“How Can I Make It OK?”
“Play the Greatest Hits”
“Feeling Myself”
“The Last Man on Earth”
“No Hard Feelings”
“The Beach II”
