Deerhunter reveal forthcoming album details with new song ‘Death in Midsummer’

Dearhunter have marked their return with new song ‘Death in Midsummer’ which is taken from the forthcoming new album Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?

As Far Out reported earlier this year, Bradford Cox announced that Cate Le Bon has produced the Deerhunter’s new record. The pair, who have previously worked on a collaborative project together, set up at a studio in Marfa, Texas to record Deerhunter’s new LP: “The rest of the band will arrive on Sunday, and Cate is going to produce the next Deerhunter record here [in Marfa, Texas], which will be very informed by the environment,” Cox said in an interview with Vogue.

Travelling between Texas, Los Angeles and Atlanta to put the finishing touches on record, it has been three years for the band to complete the follow-up to fan favourite LP Fading Frontier: “From the opening harpsichord and piano figures of ‘Death in Midsummer,’ it is impossible to tell where the record came from,” the band said in a press release. “Is ‘No One’s Sleeping’ an outtake of an aborted Kinks recording session in 1977 Berlin with Eno producing? No. That is nostalgia. If there is one thing Deerhunter are making clear it is that they have exhausted themselves with that toxic concept.”
