The group will also be running a very special Willy Wonka-inspired promotion for fans who pre-order the album, with fans who receive a gold cartridge in their order gaining access to free Turkuaz shows for life. Keeping the announcements rolling, today, the funk-fueled nine-piece has detailed a fall tour supporting the new studio effort, which will span from October to New Year’s Eve.Due out on September 28th, Life In The City will mark Turkuaz’s fifth album, following up 2015’s Digitonium. In addition, yesterday, the group dropped a retro, video game-inspired animated music video for the album’s title track, “Life In The City”, which was premiered via Magnetic Magazine. Notably, one of the album’s nine tracks, “If I Ever Fall Asleep”, was produced by Talking Heads keyboardist Jerry Harrison and engineered by ET ThorngrenAs Dave Brandwein explained to Magnetic Magazine in the outlet’s video premiere article,For this album, we spent time sorting through lots of material and different ideas. We recorded much more than we ended up using, and across a few different studios over a couple of years. There was also way more collaborative writing occurring in varying ways compared to past records. Looking back now, although the process it was made was varied and took longer it feels really cohesive. I think it ended up as a theme album in its’ own way and that feels evident now listening to it in its finished state. “Life In The City”last_img read more
