Athens-based indie gods of Montreal have announced the Sept. 14 release date of their new album, False Priest. More after the jump. The new album promises to be a bit of a departure from previous efforts, with guest appearances from R&B singers Janelle Monae and Solange Knowles. It also features co-production from Jon Brion, a notable film composer and collaborator with such big names as Kanye West and Fiona Apple.
In a recent discussion with Pitchfork, Kevin Barnes said of the album: There’s a lot of very dancey, very funky songs… We try to have these ‘holy fuck’ moments where you’re really having your mind blown, especially if you’re listening to it on headphones.”
