Canadian duo Junior Boys
are set to release their third collaboration, Begone Dull Care
, in the U.S. on April 7. The record will first be released in Canada on March 24 through the pair's label, Domino
Junior Boys spent 2008 recording the album, mostly from two different continents. Jeremy Greenspan still resides in Canada, while Matthew Didemus relocated to Germany. "Hazel" will be the first single off Begone and it will be released on both 12" vinyl and as a download.
Begone Dull Care's title is a reference to a short film by the pioneering
Oscar-winning Scottish-Canadian animator and electronic composer,
Norman McLaren, who was a big influence on the conception and creation
of this album.
Junior Boys will tour Europe for a few dates during early March before heading West to the U.S. and Canada for a six-week tour, starting March 28 in Toronto.
