Celebrated singer/songwriter Aimee Mann has announced a new album, Mental Illness, which will be released on March 31. With that news came a premiere of the LP’s lead single, a track called “Goose Snow Cone.” Stream that at this link and watch the album’s teaser video below:

Mental Illness will be Mann’s first record of new material since 2012’s Charmer.
A statement from Mann contextualizes the album, in which she remains a “student of human behavior”:
“I assume the brief on me is that people think that I write these really depressing songs,” Mann says. “I don’t know—people may have a different viewpoint—but that’s my own interpretation of the cliché about me. So if they thought that my songs were very down-tempo, very depressing, very sad, and very acoustic, I thought I’d just give myself permission to write the saddest, slowest, most acoustic, if-they’re-all-waltzes-so-be-it record I could…I mean, calling it Mental Illness makes me laugh, because it is true, but it’s so blunt that it’s funny.”
