Passion Pit sure know how to make a comeback. Today, the Cambridge, Mass.-based band made "Take A Walk," the lead single from their upcoming album "Gossamer," available on their website.

While "Take A Walk" is a welcome return to form, the song's lyrics betray its breezy, summery groove. Between choruses fit for a lazy rooftop barbecue, the band explores themes of financial struggle and prosperity through the eyes of an immigrant who works tirelessly "to bring [his] family stateside."
The song's subject matter may be indicative of a darker turn signaled by Passion Pit songwriter Michael Angelakos. In a March 2012 interview with Pitchfork, Angelakos copped to "vilifying" himself on "Gossamer," and becoming obsessed with "perfect songwriting craftsmanship."
"Gossamer" will be released July 23 on Columbia Records.
