Sheer Mag have confirmed details of Playing Favorites, their third full-length album and first with Jack White's Third Man Records. A video for the album's title track can be found below.

"After nearly ten years of touring together, we felt qualified to write a song about doing it. It's a good introduction to the next era of Sheer Mag," the band say of "Playing Favorites" in a statement.

The Philly punk band's new album will include their recent single "All Lined Up" plus an appearance from Mdou Moctar on "Mechanical Garden." It is the follow-up to 2019’s A Distant Call and their 2017 debut Need To Feel Your Love.

"Those first few records felt like a personal coming out party; they felt like they were an introduction to me and my life story," vocalist Tina Halladay said. "With these new songs, I feel like I’m finally able to move past that—there are parts on this record that I couldn’t imagine being able to sing ten, five, or even three years ago."

Sheer Mag have also announced a 2024 North America headlining tour that kicks off in D.C. in March and runs until the start of May. See below for a full list of dates. Tickets are available now.
