Matmos have announced a new album. Plastic Anniversary is out March 15 via Thrill Jockey. The record celebrates the duo’s anniversary as a couple. It was also recorded using exclusively “sounds derived from plastic objects.” According to a press release, the 11-track album aims to explore “the world’s relationship to plastic—a material whose durability, portability, and longevity, while heralded by its makers, are the very qualities that make it a force of environmental devastation.” Check out the cover art, tracklist, and album trailer below.

Plastic Anniversary follows Matmos’ previous album, 2016’s Ultimate Care II, on which all the sounds were generated by a washing machine. Read Pitchfork’s feature “The Secret Language of Laundry: Inside Matmos’ Washing Machine Album.”
