Stream Warpaint's Self-Titled Album

The sophomore album from Los Angeles band Warpaint is set for a Jan. 21 release via Rough Trade. Warpaint’s not new to working with big-name musicians—such as former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante for its debut—and the second LP from the quartet is no exception. The effort was co-produced by the band and Flood, whose work appears on albums by U2, Nine Inch Nails, Sigur Ros, Smashing Pumpkins, PJ Harvey, New Order and many more. The album was mixed by Flood and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, guitarist and singer Theresa Wayman talked about taking a different approach with this album: “We leant towards things we thought were sexier…It was an actual adjective we would use, like, ‘Oh, that’s sexy’ or ‘I think it would be sexier if we did this…’ That actually happened quite a bit.”
