Super Furry Animals have announced the release of their 9th studio album. They have a working track listing, but no album title yet. The band says "Musically it's based around riffs and grooves we've been playing around with over the last few years. We have enough now for a whole album so even though it's still very melodic we thought we could leave off the acoustic ballads for the time being."
"It's recognizable as a melodic SFA record, but is very focused musically as a cohesive album. And no country rock as Daf has developed a pedal steel phobia. Which has confined the great Nashvillian instrument along with the Saxophone to the banned instrument directive of the SFA board. There's only one slow number which isn't slow at all."
Longtime cohorts Pete Fowler will combine with legendary Japanese artist Tanaami for the album artwork, which is sure to result in a feast for the eyes. The album is due out as a digital release on March 16th via the Super Furry Animals website, with the physical release on April 13th via Rough Trade Records.
Apparently Super Furry Animals have some more tricks up their sleeve which they will be announcing a little closer to the release date. Not quite sure what that means, but it will be interesting to find out.
