The New Pornographers announce new album ‘Whiteout Conditions’

They’ve also shared ‘High Ticket Attractions’ and announced a bunch of European dates to boot.

Acclaimed supergroup The New Pornographers are back and are set to release their new album ‘Whiteout Conditions’ on 7th April via Caroline and their own imprint, Collected Works.

Talking about the writing of the new record, founder and frontman A.C. Newman said in a statement: “At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesn’t sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Let’s try and rock in a different way.” See the tracklisting for ‘Whiteout Conditions’ below.
