Rodrigo y Gabriela have revealed details of a new album for next year.

‘Area 52’ is set for release on January 23rd 2012, and will be the Mexican duo’s first recorded collaboration with another group of musicians in the form of thirteen piece Cuban orchestra C.U.B.A.

Talking about the record, Rodrigo explains: “We felt like Mulder and Scully approaching this; it was just a crazy idea, to see if a big Cuban band could play our music, a step in the dark”. He adds: “we knew it was out there, everyone has heard of Area 51, but we wanted to take it a little further”.
