The as-yet-untitled effort was recorded in Toronto with producers Gavin Brown (The Tragically Hip, Metric), Howie Beck (Feist, Josh Rouse) and Mark Endert (Maroon 5, Train).

Its release will coincide with the second serving of the Last Summer on Earth tour, featuring co-headliners Ben Folds Five and Guster, which nearly sold out its inaugural run in 2012. This year’s tour hits 30 arenas and amphitheaters and kicks off June 17 in Dallas.
