Album Updates: Caribou, the Long Blondes
Caribou unveils Andorra details. The Long Blondes prep debut for stateside release.
Dan Snaith, the sole member of Caribou, who previously subscribed to the Manitoba moniker, has announced the release of Andorra, Caribou’s follow up to 2005’s The Milk of Human Kindness, arriving Aug. 21 via his brand spanking new label, Merge, Pitchfork reports. Andorra was completely created by Snaith, who wrote, produced, and plucked, struck, or sung every note on the record, minus one co-written tune, “She’s the One,” which features Junior Boys’ Jeremy Greenspan on vocals. Although details are yet-to-be announced, Caribou plans to hit the road beginning this fall in support of the new album.
In additional album release news, Brit indie popsters the Long Blondes have announced that Someone to Drive You Home, the stylish five-piece’s debut album, will finally reach U.S. shores June 5 via Beggars with exclusive licensing from the band’s U.K. label, Rough Trade. The dozen-song set, which has accumulated heaps of praise from stateside critics, was released in the U.K. November 6.
