The Lemon Twigs (aka brothers Brian and Michael D'Addario) released their debut album, Do Hollywood, in 2016 on 4AD. Late last night shared a new song, the string- and piano-backed "If You Give Enough." Last month the band shared a teaser video for something called Go to School, which was described as "a musical by The Lemon Twigs" (watch it below again). Now Go to School has been officially announced as their sophomore album with an August 23 release date via 4AD. Below is the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as "If You Give Enough" again. Also below are the band's tour dates.

The Lemon Twigs recorded the album in their Long Island house. It features Jody Stephens (Big Star) and their father Ronnie D'Addario. A press release says Go to School "tells the heartbreaking coming of age story of Shane, a pure of heart chimpanzee raised as a human boy as he comes to terms with the obstacles of life. Todd Rundgren and their real life mother Susan Hall play Shane's parents."

The band had this to say about the album in the press release: "Something now, then, big, small, bleak, and hopeful. All in under an hour."

Of "If You Give Enough," the press release says: "In lines like 'Your life's only good as love, if you give enough,' the moral of the fable is revealed: give a lot of love without expecting it in return and you won't be corrupted by the hate around you."

Last year The Lemon Twigs followed up Do Hollywood with the Brothers of Destruction EP and back in March they shared two new songs, "Foolin' Around" and "Tailor Made," neither of which is featured on the album.
