Quebecois electropop trio Le Couleur have announced their fourth studio album, led by new single "Autobahn."

Comme dans un penthouse is due September 22 via Lisbon Lux. It follows the group's 2020 album, Concorde, and features previously released single "Sentiments nouveaux."

The new concept record reintroduces Barbara, who first appeared on Le Couleur's debut album, 2016's P.O.P. An assistant to a celebrity who has fallen from grace, we now find the character fleeing to the coast of Panama with stolen money.

"Barbara is the symbol of this relentless quest for intensity and thrill," the band explained in a statement. "Always on the hunt for renewed sensations, all that's left for her is to break down taboos in order to feel a tiny bit of excitement. Her tragic fate is inevitable. Death will steal her away as the ultimate pursuit."

Despite her being doomed to die in a tragic car crash after a life spent on the run, Le Couleur certainly make all the chaos sound cinematic with the Motorik groove of "Autobahn."

Listen to the track below.
