Thao and Mirah to Release Album in 2011

We love Thao Nguyen. We also love Mirah. As happy as we were about their recent collaborations on the road, we’re even more excited about the album the songstresses are recording at San Francisco’s Tiny Telephone Studios.

The news comes from Kill Rock Stars, the label that will release the record in spring 2011. The collection of all new material will be co-produced by the singer-songwriters and Oakland-based Tune-Yards. Long-time Thao collaborator Tucker Martine will sit behind the mixing board and Eli Crews is set to engineer the effort.

Check out a video of Thao and Mirah performing “Know Better Learn Faster,” the title track from Thao’s most recent effort (via Kill Rock Stars), below.
