Cold War Kids Ready New Album for 2011
Cold War Kids are set to drop their third studio album next year.
Mine is Yours will be released Jan. 25, 2011. It was produced by Jacquire King (Modest Mouse, Kings of Leon, Tom Waits), and frontman Nathan Willett told Consequence of Sound that the record will focus on serious relationships. “I got home from tour and realized I was married,” he said. “All my friends had either jumped in the deep end of a relationship or had drowned. When did things get so serious? We fought growing up but the wild nights and free-for-all caught up to us. Some people got out in time and others had permanent damage. For this record, I wrote about the joys and failures of commitment all around me.”
