The Rapture’s new album to be ‘100 times better than the iPad’

New York group plan summer release

The Rapture have revealed that their new album will be “100 times better than the iPad“.

Currently working on the follow-up to 2006’s ‘Pieces Of The People We Love‘ in Paris, the New York band are hoping the album will be released in the summer.

“We’re cruising through the process,” Gabe Andruzzi told Pitchfork. “If everything goes well we’d love to have this album out by June or July”.


Working with Phoenix producer Phillipe Zdar, Andruzzi also gave an insight on how the album is developing.

“Being in Paris makes the whole process seem kind of mysterious, a little magical,” he explanied. “It’s going to be a mystical, magical album. I tell him that “mystical, magical” reminds me of Steve Jobs introducing the iPad“.

He added jokingly: “Our new album’s gonna be fucking 100 times better than the iPad, with this record you’re going to be interfacing with your soul in ways that have never happened before.”
