Metric are returning with a new album. On October 13, they’ll release Formentera II via Metric Music International/Thirty Tigers. Today, they’ve shared the first single, “Just the Once,” which features strings composed and arranged by Drew Jureka (Dua Lipa) and mixed by Stuart White (Beyoncé). Check it out below along with the artwork, tracklist and the band’s upcoming tour dates.

“The only way I can describe ‘Just The Once’ is to call it ‘regret disco’,” vocalist Emily Haines said in a statement. “It’s a song for when you need to dance yourself clean. Beneath the sparkling surface, there’s a lyrical exploration of a simple word with many meanings. Once is a word that plays a game of opposites. Once can mean once-upon-a-time and refer to a moment in the past, or it can mean someday, once something happens. And as for doing something only once versus doing something once in a while, well, I think we all know how vast the difference is between the two.”

Metric’s Fantasies was on our list of the 50 best albums of 2009.
