Blitzen Trapper is returning with a new album this spring. On May 17, they’ll release their first new album in four years, 100’s of 1000’s, Millions of Billions, via Yep Roc. The first new song they’ve shared is “Cosmic Backseat Education.” Check out its video below, directed by Mychal Sargent, and featuring some puppet mayhem.

“I remember lying in the backseat of my parents’ car as a kid and just listening to the radio, which I think is where I got most of the education that I’ve used in my life and my career. We’re so brainwashed to have these goals and milestones that we all chase, but music is inherently purposeless outside of joy. If you can learn to see that same purposelessness in life, it frees you up to enjoy every moment,” said the band’s Eric Earley of the song in a statement. “Everybody says the puppeteer is in control, but everybody knows the puppet is actually calling the shots. Mr. Rogers meets Kill Bill, vigilante justice but only cotton stuffing gets spilled in these streets!”
