Arab Strap have shared their first new song in 15 years, The Turning Of Our Bones.

The distinct track unfolds around an ominous narrative about love and resurrection, over electronic drums, chilling guitar tones and bongos. It arrives with a video comprised of clips from old horror and thriller films. The influential Scottish duo — Aidan Moffat and Malcolm Middleton — said in a statement:

"The Turning of Our Bones is an incantation, a voodoo spell to raise the dead, inspired by the Famadihana ritual of the Malagasy people of Madagascar, in which they dance with the corpses of loved ones; it’s all about resurrection and shagging."

The Turning Of Our Bones will feature on a forthcoming 7" out on October 23, backed by b-side The Jumper.

Arab Strap's last full-length, 'The Last Romance', was released in 2005, shortly before they decided to part ways.
