DeVotchKa Announce 5th Album
The Denver quartet are due to release 100 Lovers on Feb 28th...
MTV favoutite DeVotchKa are set to release their new album 100 Lovers on February 28th.
For this, their fifth record, the band again headed to the vastness of the Arizona desert with producer Craig Schumacher. The resulting work is as epic as the landscape in which it was recorded, the 15 new songs offering an emotionally charged sonic expansiveness while retaining all the heartfelt romance and celebratory energy for which the group is known.
DeVotchKa recently took their celebrated live act across the globe, delivering spirited performances to audiences in places such as Istanbul, Belgium, and Poland. In Paris the band opened for Muse playing to massive crowds of 90,000.
As much as the touring, it has also been DeVotchKa – and front man Nick Urata’s, cinematic work which has informed their new album. Beginning with a Grammy nominated soundtrack for Little Miss Sunshine, Urata, who The Hollywood Reporter named one of the top 10 up-and-coming film composers, has created evocative soundscapes for a growing list of films including I Love You Phillip Morris, The Joneses and many more.
The influence of this film work can be heard on 100 Lovers opening track The Alley which begins with melancholy strings before swelling into a powerful and reflective ballad featuring Nick Urata’s otherworldly tenor crooning.
100 Lovers is released on February 28th 2011 via Anti-Records.
