Coming May 4: The New Pornographers ‘Together’

January 21st, 2010 at 7:00 am by Patrick


Coming on May 4: the new album from The New Pornographers, entitled Together. Their fifth full-length was produced by the band and Phil Palazzolo, and recorded in Vancouver, Brooklyn, Woodstock, and Catskill, NY. The album is comprised of 9 A.C. Newman songs and 3 Dan Bejar numbers, and features the full eight-person lineup of Carl, Dan, John Collins, Neko Case, Kurt Dahle, Kathryn Calder, Todd Fancey and Blaine Thurier. Additional musicians include Annie Clark (St. Vincent), Zach Condon (Beirut), Will Sheff (Okkervil River), and the Dap-Kings Horns, among other talents.

You don’t need us to tell you the album is great… but we’ll say it anyway. It’s amazing, more varied, deeper, and broader than its predecessors. Please just look forward to extreme enjoyment. First MP3 coming soon.

In the meantime, check out the brand new look on the New Pornographers site (and check out the photo page for over 100 photos from the recording of Together):

And keep in mind – Carl a/k/a A.C. Newman will be joining other luminaries onstage tomorrow night next Wednesday, January 27 at the Bell House (including Ted Leo) for a Haiti Benefit tomorrow night, January 27. All proceeds to Save The Children and Partners In Health.

Preorder information coming soon… keep your eyes on this site.
