American Football have shared a new track, Every Wave to Ever Rise.

The song, which features Elizabeth Powell of Land Of Talk, is lifted from the band's forthcoming self-titled third album, aka 'LP3', which is due out on March 22 through Big Scary Monsters. Explaining how the collaboration came about, vocalist and guitarist Mike Kinsella said:

“We were all crazy about her voice already, so we reached out to see if she’d be interested and she was! The melody and some fill in lyrics were already written and demoed but once she was on board I thought it’d be fun / add some depth to her ‘character’ by having her sing a line in French. So I wrote some lines and sent them to her, and then she translated them for me in the way a person who spoke French would actually say them. She was so cool and helpful and it turned into literally my favourite part of the album.”

The track is hauntingly beautiful and hypnotic with its concentric guitar melodies and Powell's delicate vocals adding an even more intimate dynamic to Kinsella's already soft and sincere delivery.

The Illinois band will follow up the record's release with a North American tour, including a number of festival sets. Check below for headline dates and tickets.

After releasing their self-titled debut album in 1999, and promptly splitting up, American Football became a cultural touchstone. They were synonymous with the intelligent side of emo, having created a template that would be imitated throughout the new millennium: complex, intertwining guitar parts, unconventional rhythms, and melodramatic lyrics that chronicled heartbreak and uncertainty with a sort of smug collegiate literariness.
