Ratatat announce fifth studio album - 'Magnifique'

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

Experimental alternative duo Ratatat, have announced a new album due for release via XL Recordings and Remote Control Records on July 14th. The 14 track LP is their first full length release since they unleashed LP4 in 2010. 

Magnifique will see them return back to their guitar-heavy sound. The release was recorded across four years in various studios across Brooklyn, Jamaica, and Long Island. Other sounds you can expect to see on the album will be the pedal steel guitar, as well as the sounds of a small 1940's guitar amp they picked up in a thrift shore in Guadalajara - as featured on 'Intro', 'Countach', and their cover of 'I Will Return' by Springwater. 

For a peak of what you can expect to hear on the album, listen to their new single 'Cream On Chrome' below.
