Thrill Jockey sticking their TUNNG out this April

...And Then We Saw Land is slated to be TUNNG's fourth album, due this April on Thrill Jockey.

The word is that the duo has made this album much more adventuresome in part from the band's recent travels

Since last we saw them, the band have been on adventures both personal (Mike went to India, Ashley moved to Somerset) and shared - such as their ten-day voyage of discovery with Malian desert bluesmen Tinariwen, a unique collaboration that aimed to fuse the sounds of the two bands together. An experience that helped shape Tunng’s approach to the new album, “We learned that you don’t always need structure! As long as there is presence, emotion and groove. It taught us that everything is open and adaptable...”

In the spirit of all that travel and experimentation, they’ve decided to call their new album …And Then We Saw Land – and it’s full of adventurous spirit. The first Tunng album to take more than a year to write and produce, it’s packed with big choruses and joyful tunes. “We wanted to make a record that would be a great live set,” says Mike. “My friend described it as ‘Epic Folk Disco Brass Magnificent,’ and I’m not sure you could call any other Tunng record that.”
(testing a new process here, where I'm hosting the mp3, moving up in the world) - here's "Don't Look Down or Back" from the new album.
