Mystery Jets forthcoming fourth album ‘Radlands’, will be released on 30th April via Rough Trade Records.The album was recorded between Austin, Texas and Streatham, London and was co-produced by Mystery Jets and Dan Carey (Hot Chip, Franz Ferdinand, Emiliana Torrini). They say of their new effort:
“We’ve always wanted to make a record in America and after touring Serotonin the time felt perfect to go and do it. Our first three albums were entirely conceived and recorded in London so going out to Austin felt like the furthest place from everything we knew. We arrived with a handful of songs, but one in particular felt like it captured the spirit of why we had come there. It was called Radlands (a fusion of the 1970s Terrence Malick film ‘Badlands’ and Redlands, Keith Richard’s Sussex estate), which is also what we named our studio; a big old wooden house on the banks of the Colorado river.
Twelve months on, and we are gearing up to take Radlands on the road. Its been a long time and we cannot wait to see you all again."
We can’t wait to see you either guys! Check out the official trailer for the album here:
