When Chromatics put out their last album, 2012's critically-acclaimed Kill for Love, the world was a very different place. David Bowie and Prince were still alive, a Twin Peaks reboot was still only in fans' dreams, and the thought of a Donald Trump presidency was completely unfathomable. Four years and countless delays later, Johnny Jewel and co. have announced details about their long-awaited follow-up, Dear Tommy.

The tracklist, which you can see below, features a handful of songs longtime followers of the band will recognize, including "Cherry," "I Can Never Be Myself When You're Around," and "Shadow." They've also shared a stylish music video for the slow-burning title track, which evokes an 80s horror film, with flowers, broken glass, and blood-soaked guitars.

The album doesn't have a concrete release date yet, but hopefully we can expect it sooner rather than later on Italians Do It Better.
