explosions in the sky: new album

The infinitely talented guys from Explosions in the Sky announced today that they will be releasing their newest full length album, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, on April 26th of this year. On their site is a letter addressed to the public, along with an album trailer that amounts to nothing more than a severe tease. Though the short 39 second video, which toys with the romanticization of music as mere "sounds," offers only a very vague taste of what we are to expect, it capably summarizes the notion that the album will be "different than anything else [they've] ever done" while remaining quintessentially Explosions. Needless to say, I'm absolutely giddy with excitement because its been since '07 that these guys made a full length appearance. The bands official release to the public and the video are included below:

Hi Everyone,

We're pleased to announce that our fifth album will be coming out this April. It has six songs and its called Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. It was recorded on a pecan ranch in West Texas by our good friend and frequent collaborator John Congleton. Esteban Rey did the artwork. The music on it feels different than anything else we've done before and we're very excited for you to hear it.

Anyway, here is the track list:
1. Last Known Surroundings
2. Human Qualities
3. Trembling Hands
4. Be Comfortable, Creature
5. Postcard from 1952
6. Let Me Back In

And here are the release dates:
UK (April 18th)
Europe (April 25th)
US and Canada (April 26th)

Thanks for caring and we hope to see a lot of you this year.
