Meg Duffy, the primary member of Hand Habits, has announced the band’s third studio album, Fun House, out Oct. 22 via Saddle Creek. This is the first studio album since their 2019 placeholder, but they released their Dirt EP earlier this year. The upcoming album will include guest vocals from Perfume Genius and engineered by Kyle Thomas, AKA King Tuff. Before the official release, the band has shared the first single from the album, “Aquamarine.” You can see the music video and album tracklist below.

“What originally started as a minimally arranged acoustic ballad, ‘Aquamarine’ evolved into the story of certain events in life, what informs my identity, the silence in the questions left unanswered that become the shape of understanding who I am,” Duffy said in a statement. “It was my goal to cloak some of the perils of mortality (lyrically) in a musical landscape that didn’t require the listener for a large amount of patience to bring grief into the metaphorical club. We filmed this video in my aunt’s bar and club in upstate New York, linking the origin and lineage themes in the song with the visuals of changing identities and characters in a space I used to wander as a teen.”
