Following 2012's excellent Mature Themes, Ariel Pink has announced a new double album. It's called pom pom, and is out November 18 via 4AD. The record is credited to just Pink, rather than Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti. "Although this is the first 'solo' record credited to my name, it is by far the least 'solo' record I have ever recorded," he said in a statement. Below, you can listen to the album's first single, "Put Your Number in My Phone" and check out the album cover, designed by Holy Shit's Matt Fishbeck.

He's also shared the tracklist, which you can check out below. It features 17 songs and runs 69 minutes. The album's press release notes that "Jell-O" and "Plastic Raincoats In The Pig Parade" were co-written with Kim Fowley, who's best known for managing the Runaways. Update: The tracklist has changed slightly since first reported. The album's four sides are labeled P-I-N-K rather than A-B-C-D.
