Os Mutantes to release first album for 35 years
Frontman says making the record was 'the most intense experience'
Brazilian band Os Mutantes are to release their first album in 35 years.
'Haih', the belated follow-up to 1974's 'Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol', will be out on September 7.
The band, who reformed in 2006, will release 'Haih' on the independent label ANTI- record label.
Of the new album, frontman and founding member of the band, Sergio Dias Baptista has said in a statement: "Living the conception and birth of this album was the most intense experience, for it was as if time has ceased to exist, and I was bouncing from life to life, decades through decades, revisiting myself as a 16 year-old boy playing guitar and feeling so free and indestructible."
Os Mutantes' 1968 single 'A Minha Menina' was famously covered by The Bees on their 2002 debut album 'Sunshine Hit Me'.
