Parquet Courts are releasing their new album ‘Wide Awake!’ next month, and headed to the Ellen show for a brilliantly carnival-like performance of its energetic title track.

‘Wide Awake’ followed the album’s first preview - ‘Almost Had To Start A Fight/In And Out Of Patience’ - recently, and the whole album is coming on 18th May via Rough Trade.

The album was produced by Danger Mouse. “I personally liked the fact that I was writing a record that indebted to punk and funk, and [Danger Mouse]’s a pop producer who’s made some very polished records […] I liked that it didn’t make sense,” the band’s Andrew Savage says of the record.
