I loved The Mynabirds’ Generals album, so I’m excited to share the announcement of their upcoming third album. Frontwoman Laura Burhenn says of it:
“I’ve been obsessed with this Faulkner quote: “You cannot swim for new horizons until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” And so over the past year I drove across the US twice and toured South Africa solo while writing. Then I spent the last 8 months in studios in Nashville, Los Angeles and Joshua Tree recording. This new record is unlike anything I’ve ever done (I’ve always believed consistency is overrated): it’s kind of an electric guitar-driven, shoe-gazey, 90s R&B bedroom break-up record. I’ll just leave it at that for now and send you something to hear when it’s perfectly ready… Regardless, I’m really proud of it and can’t wait for you to hear it.“
The yet-to-be-titled album will be released in early 2015.
