Sun Ra Arkestra have shared their first new studio recording in over 20 years.

Full details of the Arkestra's new album are yet to be revealed, but Strut, who will release the album, has revealed that it was recorded at the Rittenhouse Soundworks studio in Philadelphia.

The new album follows on from the release last year via Lanquidity Records of Sun Ra Arkestra - Live In Kalisz, a 1986 recording of the Arkestra's first ever show in Poland.
