Whiteout Conditions, the new full-length record from critically acclaimed supergroup The New Pornographers, is due via Caroline and the band’s own imprint, Collected Works.
Of writing the new record, founder and frontman A.C. Newman notes that, “At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesn’t sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Let’s try and rock in a different way.”
Previously they shared the album’s first single, High Ticket Attractions, via an interactive lyric video. Now they have shared another song from the album, This Is the World of the Theater, with Neko Case on lead vocals.
Whiteout Conditions is out April 7 on Collected Works Records. Pre-order here.
