Last month we brought to you the new CocoRosie album cover and general details. It was, we decided, one of the biggest abominations in the history of album art, ever, in concept and execution. A lot of you probably agreed. If, for some reason, you want to see it again, then go here.
To move slightly away from the cover art debate (though not too far, you understand), the sisters have just released a teaser clip/preview type thing for the record, which is always a strange thing, given music is completely aural and not visual, at least to those of us who don't suffer from synaesthesia. The music sounds promisingly dark, if nothing else. What else does it tell us? Not a lot.
Grey Oceans will be released on May 3 through [PIAS] Recordings in the UK. It's contains eleven tracks. Beautiful. The band also play the Matt Groening-curated ATP. More dates below:
