The first listen to a preview of their upcoming album, "Heza."

Texture has always been one of the calling cards of Generationals, and the electronic sounds from last year's Lucky Numbers EP have given way to scrubbed guitars on "Spinoza," the lead track that doesn't obviously reference the philosopher in the title from the upcoming album, Heza. They still set their slightly anxious melodies against urgent, clicking rhythms, but this time that is played on a bank of strummed, almost scrubbed, guitars. 

Heza is due out on April 2 and is the band's first album for Polyvinyl Records (Of Montreal, Japandroids, STRFKR, Shugo Tokumanu and more). Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer cut the album with their long-time producer Daniel Black at his studio in Washington, D.C. and at Spoon's Jim Eno's Public Hifi studio in Austin, Texas.

Here's the track listing:

1. Spinoza
2. Extra Free Year
3. Say When
4. You Got Me
5. Put A Light On
6. I Never Know
7. Awake
8. Kemal
9. I Used To Let You Get To Me
10. Durga II
