Broken Bells announced today (October 8) that their new album is called After The Disco, but from the sounds of a new teaser, the record seems like it was inspired directly by the disco era.

The un-named song featured in the 1-minute clip features The Shins’ James Mercer showing off his falsetto like he’s the fourth member of the Bee Gees over Brian Burton’s (better known as Danger Mouse) spacey blips and bleeps.

The video is set in a desert, that most likely isn’t on Earth, and gives very little away about the duo’s upcoming release. Except the fact that their new album will drop in January, no exact date given.

It’s the band’s full length follow-up to their 2010 self-titled debut and their first release since 2011’s Meyrin Fields EP.

Since their last album three years ago, both Mercer and Burton have stayed busy. In 2012, Mercer released his fourth album with The Shins called Port of Morrow, while Burton helped produce Norah Jones’ 2012 album, Little Broken Hearts and Portugal. The Man’s 2013 album, Evil Friends, along with The Black Keys’ 2011 album, El Camino, which earned him two GRAMMYs.
