Portugal. the Man has premiered a new song called “What, Me Worry?”

The track is the first single off the “Feel It Still” outfit’s next album, the follow-up to 2017’s Woodstock. It’s set to be released this June.

“While recording this album and hanging in LA, we got into a conversation with [producers] Jeff Bhasker and Ryan Tedder about how much we missed laughter,” says frontman John Gourley. “The last few years it’s been so easy to forget the fun in what we do.”

“We talked about childhood memories of laughing at the world and ourselves while flipping through Mad magazine,” Gourley continues. “We missed those days and remembered that we all make music. So we took that afternoon to make a song about it.”

“What, Me Worry?” is available now for digital download. You can watch its accompanying video streaming now on YouTube.

Portugal. the Man will give “What, Me Worry?” its TV debut February 23 on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!
