Parquet Courts have roped in super-producer Danger Mouse for their next studio album.
The news broke in the latest issue of British magazine Q, though the full story has yet to surface online. A representative for the band has since confirmed to Spin that Danger Mouse will, indeed, produce the group’s new record.
Danger Mouse famously produced JAY-Z and the Beatles mashup The Grey Album and has also produced LPs for acts like Gorillaz, Beck, the Black Keys, U2, A$AP Rocky and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Rumours of a new Parquet Courts album started earlier this week when the band mailed fans postcards directing them to wideawake.am — where a clock is counting down to February 22 at 10 a.m. EST. It’s expected that full album details will be announced at that time.
Thanks mister postman!!!! Hope this means what I think it means… #parquetcourts #andrewsavage #wideawake
Parquet Courts’ last album arrived as Human Performance in 2016, which was produced and mixed by the band’s own Austin Brown. They have since released a joint album with Daniele Luppi (featuring guest vocals by Karen O) called Milano.
Additionally, singer/guitarist A. Savage released solo LP Thawing Dawn last year, and bassist Sean Yeaton released a collaborative album with Mark Kozelek called Yellow Kitchen.
