One of 2014's most anticipated rock albums now has a release date.  Young the Giant's sophomore album, titled "Mind Over Matter," will drop Jan. 21 via Fueled By Ramen.

The California rockers also shared the lead single, "It's About Time," which hits the iTunes store today. The official video can be streamed below:

The new album was produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen, who has worked on Tegan and Sara's "Heartthrob" and Paramore's self-titled album.

Here's the album artwork for "It's About Time":

Young the Giant's 2010 self-titled debuted made them one rock's most commercially successful new bands. It produced two Hot 100 singles -- "My Body" and 'Cough Syrup" -- which also flourished on Alternative Songs, peaking at No. 5 and No. 2, respectively. And not only that, they even earned the rare praise of Morrissey, who commented:

"I could break down with happiness at the new debut CD by Young The Giant. It is the whole thing... It is the perfect tone... and Sameer's voice is unbreakable. If there is any justice in the world (and we all know there isn't) Young The Giant will own most of it... Every three thousand years, a band comes along who restore that precious component of faith."

The band heads over to Fueled By Ramen for the new album, after their debut was released through Roadrunner. Fueled By Ramen has enjoyed success lately with acts like fun. and Paramore.
