A new lyric video from Blur insures you can learn the band’s newest song—and how to make homemade ice cream at the same time.

After announcing The Magic Whip, the band’s first album in 12 years, via a livestream, Blur also released a lyric video for “Go Out.” The video is a Chinese instructional cooking video that, aside from a psychedelic lyric break in the middle, teaches you in a straightforward manner how to prepare “magic whip” at home.

The album was recorded in Hong Kong in 2014, and comes out April 27. Meanwhile, fans are already translating the video so they can make their own versions of “magic whip,” making this possibly the most delicious album announcement of 2015.
