The Regrettes have announced their sophomore album, How Do You Love?, due out August 9th through Warner Records. The highly anticipated follow-up to 2017’s Feel Your Feelings Fool! spans 15 tracks that deal with “the most universal of emotions: love.” As a preview, the Los Angeles popsters have let loose the first single in “I Dare You”.

The sugary track oozes with all their familiar quirks and charms. Yet it’s also emblematic of the album itself, which is based on singer-songwriter Lydia Night’s trials and tribulations with love. In fact, the whole shebang charts the rise and fall of a relationship.

“I realized that they all fit together and tell a story,” Night says in a press release. “It’s about finding bravery through [love]… learning and accepting that, yes, you went through a shitty breakup, but that’s amazing—because all that means is next time you’re in a relationship, you know so much more about yourself and about what you want.”

The press release goes on to describe the album as “the cure” from the “love disease”. They hope the songs and themes will show listeners that “no matter how they’ve experienced love—whether it’s romantic, platonic, or self-love—they’re never alone.”

What’s more, they’ve gone ahead and announced a North American tour that keeps them on the road from July until October. Don’t regret missing them and consult the dates shortly after the single, the album artwork, and the tracklist below.
