CAMERA OBSCURA TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ‘DESIRE LINES’ IN JUNE
MORE TOUR DATES ADDED
Camera Obscura officially marked their return last night with anintimate charity fundraiser in their hometown of Glasgow. Warming up for a runof shows at SXSW in Austin in a few weeks time, they also used it as a chanceto play some new tracks for the very first time and to announce that a newalbum was on the way. With nearly four years having passed since their 4ADdebut, the excellent ‘My Maudlin Career’, it’s news that’s sure to please many.
The new album was recorded lastDecember when the band decamped to Portland to work with GRAMMY nominatedproducer Tucker Martine (R.E.M.,Spoon, My Morning Jacket) and pleased with the progress they made there, theyreturned a month later to finish it. Entitled ‘Desire Lines’, it’s now slatedfor release on June 3rd (4th in North America).
Tracyanne Campbell from the band: “Of all our records this waspretty much the most challenging to write, partly because of the situation we foundourselves in with having to take such a long and uncertain amount of time out,but also because it would be record number five and we were getting harder andharder to please.
Working in the US with southerngentleman Tucker Martine was a positive experience. He brought a certaincalmness to recording that wasn’t there before. We were also delighted to have NekoCase and Jim James sing on therecord too. What a treat."
Camera Obscura have a busy year oftouring ahead of them and to add to a handful of festival dates and a run inNorth America with She & Himalready announced, they are today adding a UK tour around the album’s releaseand more shows in North America. Tickets go on sale for most shows in a week’stime. Check www.camera-obscura.net for furtherinformation.
