    Cults is ramping up for an October 6 release of their upcoming album, Offering, on which today's Song of the Day "I Took Your Picture" will appear. Offering will be Cults' first album since 2013, when their popular second album, Static, was released.

    If "I Took Your Picture" is any indication, their upcoming album may continue to feature the hazy-guitar and high-pitched vocals for which they are known. "I Took Your Picture" is, however, a little heavier on the keyboard than most of their previous work, and it gives the song a tighter structure than the drifting melodies from their first two albums. The lyrics are warning, reflective, and a little sad. According to a blurb on Sinderlyn, which is releasing Offering, drummer and guitarist Brian Oblivion's favorite lyrics on the upcoming album are in "I Took Your Picture." Says Oblivion, "I think my favorite lyric is... Tinge of blue/To the end/left our hearts/With regrets/I'm learning. That's as close as you get to a thesis statement for the album."
