The Afghan Whigs first album in 16 years, Do to the Beast, isn't out until next week but you can listen to it right now if the thought of waiting is too much to handle.

"A lot of records I've done stemmed from epochal experiences in my life – and this time I've used them all," says Greg Dulli. "These new songs are very visual to me. They come from the neighborhoods of my mind. It’s like Rashomon, with the story told from different points of memory."

You can listen to the album below courtesy of NPR. The album is released on April 15th in Europe, and the following day in North America.
