Passion Pit debut the first single from their upcoming album Gossamer.

Today, Passion Pit released the first single from their highly anticipated album Gossamer“Take A Walk,” the opening track from the 12-song LP to be released on July 24th on Columbia Records, is streaming now at: http://takeawalk.passionpitmusic.com/

Acclaimed for their unabashedly danceable live performances, Passion Pit warmed up for the upcoming release of Gossamer with a series of shows last month. They debuted tracks from the new album, including “Take A Walk,” as well as performed fan favorites from both Manners and the Chunk Of Change EP.  Passion Pit will soon hit the summer festival circuit in addition to performing at world-renowned venues including Red Rocks Amphitheater and the Hollywood Bowl (a full list of tour dates can be found below).

More on the new album:  “On Gossamer there is more of a dichotomy between the lyrics and the music. You hear my lyrics more precisely which is something I was ready for. The lyrics on this album have a lot to say about what the last two years of my life have been troubled with,” explains Angelakos.  Gossamer was made throughout 2011 in Los Angeles and New York City, and finds Angelakos co-producing with Chris Zane, who helmed Manners.

Passion Pit is the dynamic musical mission of Michael Angelakos, the electronic wunderkind best known for his complex and multi-layered pop songs. Angelakos, who debuted with his notoriously charming Chunk Of Change EP in 2008, released Passion Pit’s debut full length Manners in 2009.
