Yacht Announce New Album ‘Shangri-La’

March 29, 2011 by  

This is our second DFA related news piece of the day and sadly it does not involve James Murphy, but it does involve the return of YACHT.

YACHT have announced they will return with their second album for DFA records and their fifth in total, ‘Shangri-La’, on June 27th.

Shangri-La was produced, mixed, recorded, and performed by Jonra Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans with frequent collaborator and touring member Bobby Birdman, at the Marfa Recording Company, Jackpot! Studios, and in temporary living quarters in Los Angeles, California.

The record is clearly a concept record with YACHT’s label stating “On Shangri-La, YACHT asserts that the future is a blank slate upon which anything can be imposed… Shangri-La argues that “Paradise is kinetic potential, a latency within us that has been eaten alive by time.”
