Frankie Cosmos Announce New Album <i>Close It Quietly</i>, Share Lead Single "Windows"

New York indie rockers Frankie Cosmos have announced a new album, Close It Quietly, due out Sept. 6. Attached to the news is their new single/video, “Windows.”

In a statement, frontperson Greta Kline explains that the song “takes place during the waiting period of healing, not knowing how to proceed or how to find the path to forgiveness. The inner versus the outer—learning to see yourself as part of the whole.” That’s certainly on display in the song, which finds Kline navigating the difficulties of relationships over the flirty and upbeat guitars and keys.

The video, directed by and starring Kline and Eliza Doyle, is just as fun as the song. The pair scream and skate, journeying through Brooklyn to meet up with dogs and a wheelying biker during an all around lovely escapade. The pair end up on the beach, looking at the sunset and reflecting on their emotional states as the day winds down.

Frankie Cosmos’ new bio describes Close It Quietly as “a continual reframing of the known, taking the band’s trademark micro-universe and upending it, spilling outwards into a swirl of referentiality that’s a marked departure from earlier releases, imagining and reimagining motifs and sounds throughout the album.” The album will have a whopping 21 tracks (that’s three more than their 2018 album Vessel, for those of you keeping score at home), and features collaborations with Lauren Martin, Luke Pyenson, Alex Bailey and Gabe Wax.

Close It Quietly is due out Sept. 6 via Sub Pop. The band have also announced a massive world tour for the fall, featuring stops in Amsterdam, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Paris, New York City and many more. You can find all the stops, along with the full tracklist and album art, beneath the video for “Windows” below.
