The Raveonettes stream new album ‘Observator’ – listen
The band’s sixth album will be released on Monday (September 10)
The New York-based, Danish duo recorded their sixth album in Los Angeles, California, lured by what guitarist/singer Sune Rose Wagner described as 'the warm Pacific pull' and a desire to capture something of The Doors. It follows a period in which Wagner was diagnosed with clinical depression and ordered to stop drinking. Sune Rose Wagner says:
This album rose from such a dark place but ended up illuminating the gloominess and restlessness in a way I never thought possible. I honestly never thought this album would see the light of day, all the turmoil, all the craziness, all the sleepless night but in a single burst of spontaneous madness it came to be. I'm so thrilled for people to hear this new album in its entirety, it's quite a dark ride.
Observator was recorded at Sunset Sound Studios with Richard Gottehrer, who previous credits include Blondie, The Go-Gos and Richard Hell. The band previously worked with him on 2005's 'Pretty In Black'.
The band's last album 'Raven In The Grave', was released just last year.
