'Gone Tomorrow', taken from Lambchop's upcoming new album Mr. M.

Lambchop's eleventh album Mr. M is due out through City Slang on 20th February, and will be accompanied by a UK and European tour.

We're pleased to have the opportunity to premiere a new track from the album, 'Gone Tomorrow' (album opener 'If Not I'll Just Die' is still available for listening and download now). Listen via the Soundcloud embed below. It's a softly spoken but subtly forceful listen, waves of rapid-fire percussion repeatedly rising to the surface before sinking into the distance once again.

Mr. M was apparently very much a record pieced together in the studio, something it's possible to hear in the multi-layered production of 'Gone Tomorrow'. Said Lambchop's Kurt Wagner: "As I worked, I was approached by Mark Nevers (former full time band member & producer for the likes of Andrew Bird and Will Oldham) with the idea of making another Lambchop record. He had a concept of a sound and a method that worked with the tone of my writing. His idea was a kind of ‘psycha-Sinatra’ sound, one that involved the arranging of strings and other sounds in a more open and yet complex way."

Around the release of the album, Lambchop will be playing the following dates in the UK and Ireland:

1st - London, Barbican
3rd - Dublin, Vicar's Street
4th - Gateshead, Sage
5th - Glasgow, Oran Mor
