Yesterday Those Darlins unveiled a banner in Nashville, Tenn., that caused quite a commotion. Now Paste can exclusively confirm that the banner —which features the lower-halves of four nude bodies and stressed out Fox News —is the cover artwork for the band’s new album.
Blur The Line is the forthcoming third studio release from the Tennessee four piece, and it was produced by Roger Moutenot, who has previously worked with the likes of Yo La Tengo, John Cale and JEFF the Brotherhood. The band called Moutenot a “true revelation” for them, saying he’s helped give the band’s sound a greater reach.
The new LP will include 11 new tracks and sees the band taking on a more subdued sound compared to 2011’s rowdy Screws Get Loose.
Of the group’s unorthodox announcement method, Those Darlins said in a press release that they just wanted to create mystery, have fun and get people talking.
“We love that Nashville and its music community are growing. We wanted to have them react to the cover image before they knew it was related to Those Darlins.”
Blur The Line is set to be released on Oct. 1 on Oh Wow Dang.
