On Friday morning, The Doobie Brothers announced that they’ll be releasing their 15th studio album, LIBERTÉ, on October 1 via Island Records. Featuring Tom Johnston, Pat Simmons, and John McFee, it’s the iconic band’s first record since the star-studded Southbound in 2014, and will be the first with new originals since World Gone Crazy (2010).

Alongside the announcement, the Doobies also put out The Doobie Brothers EP, a four-song sampler of the forthcoming record. Complete with classic Johnston romps, the band’s signature harmonies, and a level of songcraft equally as elevated and sharp as any of their output, the EP is a sign that the Doobies are still a rock’n’roll tour de force. 

The new music comes right as the Doobie Brothers are embarking on a 49-date tour commemorating the band’s 50th anniversary—the shows also see Johnston, Simmons, McFee, and Michael McDonald reuniting for their first tour together in 25 years.
