Buffalo alt-rock/experimental/ band Mercury Rev have announced plans to released their eighth LP titled 'The Light In You' on September 18 through Bella Union.
The album, is their first in seven years (it follows 2008's Snowflake Midnight), and it is also the first to be recorded without producer Dave Fridmann behind the controls, instead it has been produced by co-leaders Jonathan Donahue and Grasshopper.
Donahue spoke about the seven-year gap between records in a statement. “It was one of those otherworldly life sequences, when everything you think is solid turns molten,” he said. “But also, when something is worth saying, it can take a long time to say it, rather than just blurt it out.”
The band have also debuted the album's first single "The Queen Of Swans". Check out the album's tracklist, and listen to the song below.
