As expected, Cold War Kids have unveiled new music in the form their inspiring single "Love Is Mystical," which they teased back in December.
The anthemic song arrived Thursday with an incredible accompanying video. It's the first preview of the band's new album L.A. Divine, which is coming on April 7. As we previously mentioned, it will mark the band's debut on Capitol Records.
"Love is mystical / love will break the chains / you might feel invincible / you might be afraid/light in darkness / will show you the way / give you the power to believe again," frontman Nathan Willett sings on the track, which he says is "about supernatural love—looking for inspiration and meaning, surrendering to feeling, love calling out your name and that journey we must go on to find it."
In the entrancing video, the band is seen performing the new song in downtown Los Angeles at St. Vincent Court, where they are joined by dancers who embrace and kiss in celebration of love. The video was directed by Phillip Lopez and choreographed by Amy Gardner.
