(RADIO.COM) – Train will be returning in 2017 with a new album, a girl a bottle a boat.

It marks the band’s first new music since their 2014 album Bulletproof Picasso. Train already shared the album’s first single, “Play That Song,” which borrows the central melody from the 1938 single “Heart and Soul” by Howard Hoagland “Hoagy” Carmichael.

Cooling off from their show at Thursday night’s performance at Alice In Winterland at The Masonic in San Francisco, Train’s frontman, Pat Monahan, said about their new album, “Every album I’ve ever been a part of writing has had a fair amount of difficulty. Wanting to touch people’s lives is a daunting task but when it happens it makes all of the blood sweat and tears worth it. a girl a bottle a boat has been the most fun and fulfilling I think of all of the Train albums.”

a girl a bottle a boat will arrive January 27th.
