What else could be described as “two little Billie Holidays an octave higher if you were on acid in Tokyo in 1926” (Jim Jarmusch) but CocoRosie’s newest song “Heartache City.” Their newest single is just a preview of what’s to come in their up and coming album scheduled to release on September 18th.
Although the studio version isn’t set to drop until the album is available in two months, Bianca and Sierra’s live Milan recording of “Heartache City” can be heard here!
Other new music from CocoRosie, such as “Hairnet Paradise” and “Big and Black” can be heard in their behind-the-scenes video below.
Over their eleven years as a musical dynamic duo, CocoRosie has released five other albums; La Maison de Mon Reve (2004), Noah’s Ark (2005), The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn (2007), Grey Oceans (2010) and Tales of A GrassWidow (2013).
When asked about their new album (so new in fact that the girls have yet to title it), the sister’s responded,
“This will be our sixth record! Like many of our past records, we wrote and gathered much of the material at our farm studio in the south of France with minimal equipment, vintage toys and antique instruments. Going back to a ‘4-track’ style approach, we limited ourselves to essential, acoustic accompaniment, played by us, and select percussion, toys from our old suit cases dating back to the “La Maison” days. Unlike our more psychedelic/electronic explorations of the last two records, our latest songs have a dusty southern feel with old-timey poetry. We ended up in Argentina where we finished the recordings and mixed the record with engineer Nicolas Kalwill with whom we’ve worked on two previous records. The spirit of Buenos Aires added to our already teen-romance-nostalgic-mood where we spontaneously shot a music video casting over 30 local girls.”
