Khruangbin’s ‘Late Night Tales’ compilation will arrive on December 4. Much like the psych-rock band’s music in general, the forthcoming record will contain influences from countries around the world.

“We definitely wanted to cover as much global territory as possible; so it was the globe and then home,” the band said.

“We wanted to show the treasures from our hometown, or people from our hometown that the rest of the world probably doesn’t know. That’s what makes Khruangbin Khruangbin.”

Khruangbin gained popularity when their track ‘A Calf Born in Winter’ was included in Bonobo’s ‘Late Night Tales’ compilation back in 2013.

“The ‘Late Night Tales’ series is such a special thing to be a part of because we wouldn’t have made it if it wasn’t for Bonobo’s ‘Late Night Tales’, because that’s how we got into the LNT family – and got a break,” the band said.

The band’s third full-length album, ‘Mordechai’, arrived earlier this year. Upon its release, NME gave the album a five-star review, writing, “Khruangbin have at once expanded their horizons while rooting their latest project in a sound they’ve made their own.”
