The new album will be out July 21 through Columbia Records and the single “Humongous” is available for listening now. The album can be pre-ordered now.

Of the song, the artist said: “This was the last song I wrote for the record … Definitely a step in the direction I’m heading in.”

McKenna is playing Europe and North America in the coming months, with destination festivals like Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds all on the menu. His next stop is today at Valkhof Festival in The Netherlands, followed by Out Of The Woods in Austria July 21.

His headline plays are after the summer festivals, starting in Detroit Aug. 5 and continuing until Aug. 15 in Cambridge, Mass. Dan Luke And The Raid are joining him for that run.

The “Brazil” singer also has two gigs lined up in Japan, at Summer Sonic Chiba and Osaka Aug. 19-20.

Tickets to select gigs are on sale now.
