White Denim have announced details of a new album!
‘Side Effects’ will come out on 29th March via City Slang, and is being previewed by two new tracks, ‘Shanalala’ and ‘NY Money’.
Speaking of the latter track, the band’s James Petralli says: “The lyrics came first. The first line was originally ‘The drugs quit smoking, I don’t find it inspiring.’ which I had written in a notebook after a night of drinking with the War on Drugs guys.
“They had all recently ‘quit’ cigarettes which made me suspect that they were really hanging around me so they could pinch cigs every couple of minutes. I went through two packs in three hours with them. The Neu influenced production and meandering feel of the back part of the tune is a winking homage to what they’ve been up to for the past few years.”
White Denim are set to preview ‘Side Effects’ on a UK tour next month, which includes a big London show at the Roundhouse.
