Dinosaur Jr. have unveiled a new track.

Anchored by a playful keyboard melody, Take It Back serves as a catchy final preview of the indie-rockers' imminent full-length, 'Sweep It Into Space', due out this Friday (April 23) via Jagjaguwar.

It's the third cut to be shared from the record, following Garden and I Ran Away featuring Kurt Vile, who co-produced the LP with the band. Head below to check out the accompanying Callum Scott-Dyson video, which utilises trippy stop-motion animation. He said:

 "[I] really wanted to use the creature on the front of the album sleeve for 'Sweep It Into Space' as an inspiration and springboard for its own little adventure, exploring some simple notions of creation, dependence, coming of age and searching for another like yourself.

"I wanted to mix those themes with my style of stop motion animation, everything being very DIY and handmade, using any materials I could get my hands on to bring the idea to life and give it a surreal and otherworldly feel. I've always been a really big fan of Dinosaur Jr, so I was working extra hard to do something that could add to such an awesome track and sit alongside it."

Dinosaur Jr. will support the album with a North American tour beginning on September 7 in Montreal. They've also rearranged their Camp Fuzz retreat — an annual rock camp run by the band for fans — to July in Big Indian, New York.
