To get fans excited, The Raveonettes’ premiered a new song last week titled “Observations”. This 1st track comes from the duo’s upcoming album Observator out September 11th via Vice Records.
Songwriter Sune Rose Wagner says, “Observations is sort of the blue print for this album. It captures a universal feeling of the outsider in his daily life, his longing and losses in love and his primordial instinct of survival.”
“Sharin [Foo] and I went into the legendary Sunset Sound Studios for a week - where The Doors recorded a lot of their classic albums. It was there that a new dimension to the Raveonettes began to develop. The song Observations is very important in that respect; it’s the first time we’ve ever used the piano and what a glorious, gloomy sound it makes. We knew immediately that it was something we needed to expand on. But make no mistake; Observator is still a gorgeous guitar album.”
In support of their new album The Raveonettes will hit the road in September, playing dates in Chicago, New York + Los Angeles before wrapping up in San Francisco this October. Tour dates below.
