Iowa City band Younger, who got a delightful bump to national fame in December when their self-titled debut album made ABC News’ list of the top 50 albums of the year, have certainly not been resting on those well-earned laurels. Instead, they’ve been back in the studio, making musical magic together again — and they’ve got a new track ready to prove it.

Younger is still a ways from completing their new album, but the band was eager to share this new earworm with their fans. “[W]e didn’t want to wait months before getting some new stuff out there,” says bassist Amanda Crosby. “We released our first album almost exactly a year ago,” she notes, “so the timing seemed right.”

Without further ado, enjoy “Divorce”:
