The Danish duo the Raveonettes will release their new record, Observator, on September 11th on Vice, but you can hear an exclusive stream of the entire album here. Though the record took months to write, members Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo recorded Observator in just one week at Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles with producer Richard Gottehrer.

With its fuzzed-out haze settling over much of the record, Observator is filled with upbeat pop cuts like "Sinking With the Sun" and "Downtown," along with the Americana-tinged opener "Young and Cold" and the lovelorn "The Enemy."

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
