Album announcement day recap

I wish I wasn't so busy with other stuff. I don't really have time to write too much on here so I'm just going to throw up some things that's happened during the day.

First up is an interview with Will Butler. Talks about the new album and his connection with suburban life.

Earlier in the day Win and Will was on NPR talking about the new album and officially premiering the 2 new songs to the Americans. They among other things revealed there will be a lot more of Régine on the new album which I'm extremely pleased to hear. Really missed her on Neon Bible. Check out the full 30 min interview here. Then Win spoke a bit to Zane Lowe but that interview was pretty forgettable.

What overshadowed everything though was of course the actual album announcement. Love the album art. Think it could look absolutely gorgeous on the vinyls. Goes without saying probably but I pre-ordered the "6) Double 12” Vinyl + premium digital + Limited Edition Screen Printed Poster (Designed by Wes Winship from Burlesque of North America)" package.

Oh and have you guys played enough yet with The Suburbs lyrics? Yeah? Me too.

I stumbled across wikipedia and noticed that there is a page up for The Suburbs and there is a tracklisting. Not too sure if this is legit or what source it comes from >_>
