Legendary Brazilian group Os Mutantes has announced plans release its first studio album in 35 years. The album, titled Haih, will be released through Anti- Records on Sept. 8. Whaddaya say we celebrate over some McDonald's?

The album will feature collaborations with Brazilian legends Tom Zé, who contributed lyrics, and Jorge Ben.

Os Mutantes were formed in 1966 by Sergio Dias and his brother Arnaldo. They would go on to release highly influential tropicalia music, earning an underground cult following including David Byrne, Kurt Cobain and Beck.
 
Haih will be the group's first recorded material since 1974 and will be the first Os Mutantes record to see worldwide release.

On Anti-'s website, Sergio Dias said making the album "was the most intense experience, for it was as if time had ceased to exist, and I was bouncing from life to life, decades through decades, revisiting myself as a 16 year-old boy playing guitar and feeling so free and indestructible."
