I read an interview at Billboard.com with New Pornographers member Carl Newman about the new album they’re recording and I haven’t calmed down since. It may be out as early as August AND they’re planning a tour, Neko Case included!
Newman described the new album during the interview saying: “We realized, we can do any kind of song we want on our albums. This record is an extension of that. It is maybe slightly more epic. It has our first song that passes the six-minute-long mark. In fact, it might have our first songs that pass the five-minute mark!”
