Lost and Safe, the last album from the pastoral sound collage duo the Books, came out almost exactly five years ago. Kids who were born on the same day Lost and Safe came out are now gearing up for kindergarten. Dogs who were born on the same day Lost and Safe came out are now entering middle age. It’s time for another Books album.
Well, the wait won’t last much longer. The duo have signed with Temporary Residence, and they plan to release an as-yet-untitled new album this July. They’ll play the Communikey Festival in Boulder, Colorado on April 16, ATP New York in September, and pretty soon they’ll announce a round of more tour dates.
