Syracuse, N.Y., band Ra Ra Riot is set to release the new album "Need Your Light" on Feb. 19. It's their first studio album since 2013, the same year they visited the CPR Performance Studio.
The lead single "Water" features Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend. Singer Wesley Miles previously collaborated with Batmanglij in the electronica project Discovery.
"Water" is a happy medium between the two acts: it's grounded in Ra Ra Riot's indie pop but mixes in a wide range of electronic elements found in the music of Discovery.
Ra Ra Riot will perform at the Bluebird Theater on April 4.
