Montreal four piece TOPS are gearing up to release their new album Picture You Staring on 8 September via Arbutus, and today you can listen to a new track from that album 'Way To Be Loved'. It's a raw punk take on AM studio pop, making it retro in all of the right ways. Jane Penny's voice is sweet as pie and floats dreamily over the wind-swept instrumentals.

The artwork for the album, which you can view above, was crafted by Los Angeles based artist Jessica Dean Harrison. It's her conceptual imagining of the record's title, and if you pick up a copy on vinyl, it comes with a large poster continuing that scene. Pre-orders are available now!
