It's been a while since we've heard the hushed voices of Kings of Convenience, Norway's mellow indie-folk royalty. After four years on semi-hiatus, the Kings have announced that their third studio album is on the way.
Declaration of Dependence will be released on Oct. 20 and, according to
Erlend Øye, is "the most rhythmical pop record ever that features no
percussion or drums."
The seed for the recording process was planted when the duo reconvened on a Mexican beach in February of 2007, and went on to play a concert in
Mexico the following month - their first gig together in over two years.
