Passion Pit Announces New Album


Their first album may have started off as a Valentine’s Day gift for singer Michael Angelakos’ girlfriend, but Passion Pit have announced that a treat for the rest of us is scheduled to drop this spring.

Angelakos spoke with the NME recently at the V Festival in the UK and revealed that a new album is in the works. “It’s gonna be a really fantastic, exciting, beautiful, gorgeous record,” he said. “An absolutely beautiful record. I’m so excited.”

Angelakos added that there may be several editions of the album and that the initial release will coincide with the beginning of spring. “We’re aligning it with the Farmers’ Almanac in America, so when the buds start to bloom is when we kind of wanna release it, like when life starts to come back,” he said. “We wanna be pretty literal.”
