    After six long years, John Maus is prepping to drop a new album called Screen Memories. The 12-track collection follows 2011’s We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves and was previously teased with lead single “The Combine”. Now, another track has been unboxed in “Touchdown”.

    Here, Maus uses ripples of dark, ’80s-esque synths to conjure an eerie and mysterious atmosphere. Its corresponding music video, also released today, is similarly something of an odd watch. Directed by Jennifer Juniper Stratford, it features fuzzy footage of football players and coaches, playing out like a retro promotional sports video but with a Stranger Things twist.

    Check it out below.
