Ring the good news bell: Micachu & The Shapes are set to return with a new album this September.

Their third studio album was apparently created by "accident" according to the press release. How? Well the trio were deep in a jam session when drummer Marc Pell decided to the whole session with an Edirol field recorder (the new record was built around those rough cuts).

"For me it's the most free we have been," explains Mica Levi, saying the lyrics to the entire record were written "non-stop, in one avalanche."

Good Sad Happy Bad is preceded by track 'Oh Baby', which you can stream below:
