Luscious Jackson announce release of comeback album - listen

'Magic Hour' is their first new studio LP since 1999's 'Electric Honey'

Luscious Jackson have announced the release of their comeback album, 'Magic Hour'.

Set for release on November 5 via their own City Song label, Jill Cunniff, Gabrielle Glaser and Kate Schellenbach's fourth album - the follow-up to 1999's 'Electric Honey' - was produced by Cunniff and Glaser, with assistance from Beastie Boys member Adam Horovitz on 'So Rock On'. The album was funded by fans via PledgeMusic.com also features 'Show Us What You Got', which you can listen to by clicking above.

Speaking about 'Magic Hour', Cunniff commented: "When we were making the new album we felt like we did when we were making our first demos. We were just smiling and laughing all the time because we rediscovered a musical connection we all really loved and missed."

The band released their debut album 'Natural Ingredients' through the Beastie Boys' Grand Royal label in 1994 and last year revealed that they had got back together in order to put out a brand new LP. Speaking to CNN Jill Cunniff said: "I hope there's nostalgia, that's great, but it has nothing to do with what we're doing. It's just because the time is exactly right to do it. Five years ago, there wasn't this type of social network connection, connectivity. I think now people really miss that spirit of another time. People were really sad to hear we broke up and I guess now those people realising that we're reuniting and they're writing about how happy they are. It's great."

She added: "We're older now so the lyrics are different. There probably won't be cursing. I was listening to the old stuff and there was a lot of cursing. I'm not feeling like curses in my lyrics right now. But I don't feel like an old person. It's definitely not like, 'Oh, we're adult contemporary now.'"
