Hear A Teaser For New Underworld Album Barbara Barbara, we have a shining future

Underworld have announced that their first new album in six years, Barbara Barbara, we face a shining future, will be out on 3/18, and have shared a preview of some of the tracks. This is how they described the sound of the record in a newsletter to their fans:

So what’s there in the shining future? The opening punch of a two-note detuned bass riff crunching over relentless percussion; the elegiac swoop of strings as they stretching out across off-world electronics; a demented lupine howl that curls itself into an unshakeable earworm; celestial techno and South American acoustics; voices that warp into harmonic riffs; found lyrics that form fine-tuned monolgues; head music to dance to..
