We’ve been hearing for a long, long time about Dear Tommy, the new album from glimmering, depressive electro deities Chromatics. “Just Like You,” which was supposed to be the first single from the follow-up to 2012’s great Kill For Love, came out way back in February of 2015. They literally announced the album in 2014. And while Chromatics have been silent for a while now, they’ve just posted a tantalizing little teaser: An absolutely badass photo and the words “Dear Tommy” on the Twitter page of management company Echo Park. That’s it! That’s all we get! But it’s something!

I have absolutely no inside knowledge on anything like this happening, but can you imagine if Dear Tommy came out on the same day as Boys Don’t Cry? Which would you listen to first?
