Via sharing an in-the-studio video, CocoRosie have confirmed they’ll be releasing a new album later this year.
The follow-up to 2013’s ‘Tales of a Grass Widow’ will, as the video’s description states, be released “in Fall” (to those this side of the pond - they mean Autumn).
In addition, the video features snippets of new songs ‘Hairnet Paradise’ and ‘Big and Black’.
A statement posted on the pair’s website reads, “This will be our sixth record! Like many of our past records, we wrote and gathered much of the material at our farm studio in the south of France with minimal equipment, vintage toys and antique instruments. Going back to a ‘4-track’ style approach, we limited ourselves to essential, acoustic accompaniment, played by us, and select percussion, toys from our old suit cases dating back to the ‘La Maison’ days. Unlike our more psychedelic/electronic explorations of the last two records, our latest songs have a dusty southern feel with old-timey poetry. We ended up in Argentina where we finished the recordings and mixed the record with engineer Nicolas Kalwill with whom we’ve worked on two previous records. The spirit of Buenos Aires added to our already teen-romance-nostalgic-mood where we spontaneously shot a music video casting over 30 local girls.”
CocoRosie have a series of both headline and festival dates lined up throughout the summer, beginning on 30th June in Italy.
