Two years on from the release of Tales Of A Grass Widow, freak folk sister duo CocoRosie have announced the release of their sixth full-length album. Currently on tour in Europe, before heading to North America in the Autumn, CocoRosie are giving audiences the chance to hear and experience the album in a live format.
Here’s what Bianca “Coco” and Sierra “Rosie” said of the album:
“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.”
Ahead of the album’s release on September 18th, CocoRosie have shared the first superb taste from it, a live version of ‘Heartache City’. The recording was done on their second show in Milan. Listen to it now.
