Villagers announces release date for new LP and tour dates

Villagers (AKA Connor O’Brien) have announced the release date for their newest album Where Have You Been All My Life? Due out via Domino Recordings we can now confirm it will be released on January 8th 2016.

The LP was recorded in one day (one fucking day, that’s 24 hours – I’ve had dinners that have taken longer to pass). One of the reasons for such a short recording time is the use of the five years’ worth of Villagers tracks as O’Brien looks to distil his past work and seamlessly weave them together to create one flowing tapestry.
