Khruangin have announced their third album ‘Mordechai’ set to be released on June 26th via Dead Oceans.
They have also shared a new single from the album, ‘Time (You And I)’ which premiered on Annie Mac’s radio show.
In a statement the band said “Khruangbin has always been multilingual, weaving far-flung musical languages like East Asian surf-rock, Persian funk, and Jamaican dub into mellifluous harmony, but on album No 3, is finally speaking out loud. Mordechai features vocals prominently on nearly every track, a first for the mostly instrumental band. It’s a shift that rewards the risk, re-orienting Khruangbin’s transportive sound toward a new sense of emotional directness, without losing the spirit of nomadic wandering that’s always defined it.”
This comes after they released a four track EP earlier in the year with soul singer and fellow Texas native Leon Bridges.
