Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington have given the full details of their debut album as Darkside.

The album, named 'Psychic', is more of a rock record compared to Jaar's usual interest in smokey house and hip hop, and will (according to the press release) explore "rock's cosmic outer edges through the immersive, body-moving framework of 21st-century house and techno."

So there you have it. The eight-track record is due out via Matador and Jaar's own imprint Other People next month, and opens with the Angelo Badalamenti-esque, 11-minute long Golden Arrow, which you can stream below.

The duo have history together – Harrington plays guitar in Jaar's live band, and they released a three-track EP simply titled 'Darkside' on Jaar's Clown+Sunset label back in 2011. There was also the small matter of 'Daftside', their headline-grabbing remix of Daft Punk's entire 'Random Access Memories'.

Tracklist:
1. Golden Arrow
2. Sitra
3. Heart
4. Paper Trails
5. The Only Shrine I've Seen
6. Freak, Go Home
7. Greek Light
8. Metatron

Matador/Other People will release 'Psychic' on October 8th.
