Devendra Banhart has posted a new track, titled ‘Mi Negrita’, online – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen.
The song is taken from the singer’s forthcoming new LP ‘Mala’, which will be his eighth studio effort and is set for release on March 11. Recorded in Los Angeles, ‘Mala’ will be supported by a tour, details of which will be announced shortly.
Previously, Banhart revealed that the follow-up to 2009’s ‘What Will We Be’ was made using borrowed equipment and on a vintage Tascam recorder bought in a pawn shop.
He explained: “A lot of early hip-hop had been made on [the Tascam]. And knowing my songs are not hip-hop whatsoever, we thought it would be interesting to see how these kinds of songs would sound on equipment that was used to record our favorite rap. Let’s see how this technology would work for us.”
The ‘Mala’ tracklisting is:
‘Für Hildegard Von Bingen’
‘Never Seen Such Good Things’
‘Your Fine Petting Duck’
‘The Ballad Of Keenan Milton’
‘Won’t You Come Over?’
‘Won’t You Come Home’
