The next era of The 1975 has officially begun.

The U.K. outfit has premiered a new song called “Part of the Band.” It’s the first preview of the group’s upcoming album, Being Funny in a Foreign Language, due out October 14.

You can listen to “Part of the Band” now via digital outlets. Its accompanying video will premiere on YouTube at 2 p.m. ET.

The news comes after The 1975 deactivated all of their social media platforms — a stunt they’ve pulled numerous times leading up to album announcements. They then returned to social media in June by simply teasing, “Your new album. Your new era. Your old friends.”

Being Funny in a Foreign Language is the fifth 1975 album and the follow-up to 2020’s Notes on a Conditional Form. Here’s the track list:

“The 1975”
“Looking for Somebody (To Love)”
“Part of the band”
“Oh Caroline”
“I’m in Love with You”
“All I Need to Hear”
“Human too”
“About You”
“When We Are Together”
