UPCOMING ALBUMS Death Cab For Cutie, Interpol, Best Coast and more

This week there’s been some huge album announcements from Death Cab For Cutie and Interpol plus something a little unexpected from Best Coast.

After teasing new music earlier on this year, Death Cab For Cutie have unveiled the official details for their ninth album set to be released on August 17. The album, titled Thank You For Today is their first since 2015. It will feature new members Dave Depper and Zac Rae, who have been touring with the group since 2015. Listen to the first single from the album, Gold Rush, below.

Interpol have also announced their sixth studio album, and first since 2014’s El Pintor. The band announced the album at a press release in Mexico City, and also put out a new single, The Rover, which you can listen to below. Titled Marauder, the album will be out on August 24 and is the band’s first work with an outside producer since 2007’s Our Love To Admire. 

Now in an unexpected announcement, Best Coast are releasing a kids album set to be titled Best Kids. An early taste of the album comes in their new original track Cats and Dogs. The album is also set to feature covers of Lesley Gore and Frankie Valli and a re-recording of the band’s track When I’m With You.“I wanted to make a kid’s album not just for kids but also for the parents with cool music taste that might be tired of listening to the same songs off the Frozen soundtrack 200 times in a row,” said Bethany Cosentino. Best Kids comes out June 22.
