Shearwater will release their new record Jet Plane and Oxbow on January 22 through Sub Pop. It acts as the follow-up to 2013’s covers album Fellow Travelers, but is the band’s first collection of original music since 2012’s Animal Joy.
Frontman Jonathan Meiburg enlisted the help of percussionist and film composer Brian Reitzell, who worked with Sofia Coppola on The Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation to record the album in the band’s hometown of Austin.
