Lest Dan Boeckner have nothing to do while Wolf Parade is on hiatus, the former Atlas Strategic and Handsome Furs member has joined with Spoon’s Britt Daniel and New Bomb Turks drummer Sam Brown in a new band, Divine Fits.

The trio spent a couple months in Los Angeles this spring recording an album, “A Thing Called Divine Fits,” which they’re releasing later this summer on Merge. They’re streaming the lead-off track, “My Love is Real,” which features austere vocals from Boeckner (who splits lead vocal duties with Daniel throughout) over a pulsing, buzzy synthesizer that’s topped with a breezy melody line.

“A Thing Called Divine Fits” is due Aug. 28.
