Barely a year out from the release of its last album, rock act Switchfoot will return Dec. 26 with another new studio set, "Oh! Gravity." First single "Dirty Second Hands" will hit digital retailers on Sept. 19. The album was produced by Tim Palmer, although Steve Lillywhite took the reins for the track "Awakening."

"Oh! Gravity" is the follow-up to "Nothing Is Sound," which debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 last September. Other tracks earmarked for the album include "American Dream," "Amateur Lovers," "Faust," "Burn Out Bright" and "Let Your Love."
