American Football's third album is on the way.

The legendary emo band returned in 2016 with a self-titled follow up to their seminal 1999 debut and fans will be happy not to have to wait another 17 years for their next full length offering.

Album three is another self-titled effort, aka 'LP3', will arrive on March 22 through Big Scary Monsters in the UK and boasts guest vocals from Hayley Williams of Paramore, Land of Talk’s Elizabeth Powell, and Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell.

The band recorded the album at the same studio and with the same producer as its predecessor, Jason Cupp at Arc Studios in Omaha, Nebraska. Vocalist and guitarist Mike Kinsella said:

"We put a lot of time and a lot of energy into it. We were all thoughtful about what we wanted to put out there. Last time, it was figuring out how to use all of our different arms. This time, we were like – Okay, we have these arms, let’s use them."

 "I feel like my lyric writing has changed a lot over the years. The goal is to be conversational, maybe to state something giant and heavy, but in a very plain way. But, definitely in this record, I keep things a little more vague."

Head below to check out the album's artwork, tracklist and opener, Silhouettes. The seven-minute song is expansive and atmospheric with looped guitar riffs accompanied by ethereal chimes and samples as Kinsella repeats sombre lyrics. "I'm a fool for your pageantry, tell me again what's the allure of inconsequential love. Oh, the muscle memory continue to haunt me," he sings.

'LP3' tracklist:

1. Silhouettes
2. Every Wave To Ever Rise (ft. Elizabeth Powell)
3. Uncomfortably Numb (ft. Hayley Williams)
4. Heir Apparent
5. Doom in Full Bloom
6. I Can't Feel You (ft. Rachel Goswell)
7. Mine To Miss
8. Life Support
