American Football have announced their self-titled second album and shared lead single "I've Been So Lost For So Long".

The album comes 17 years after their 1999 debut album (also self titled), and will be released 21 October via Wichita.

Steve Holmes, Mike and Nate Kinsella, and Steve Lamos recorded American Football at ARC Studios in Omaha and SHIRK Studios in Chicago earlier in 2016, with production from the band and Jason Cupp.
