Near To The Wild Heart Of Life, the follow-up to their incredible 2012 album Celebration Rock, was written clandestinely throughout 2014 and 2015 in Vancouver, Toronto, New Orleans, and Mexico City. It was (mostly) recorded by Jesse Gander (who had previously recorded both Post-Nothing and Celebration Rock) at Rain City Recorders in Vancouver.
Japandroids have also shared the first single, Near To The Wild Heart Of Life. The track will be released as a 7” single with a cover of Talking Heads’ Love → Building on Fire on the B-side.
