After last week’s cryptic single, Blonde Redhead are ready to come clean. Well sorta. Yes, there is a new album, Penny Sparkle, on the way. Yes it’s due out September 14th. We even know that it was produced by Van Rivers and The Subliminal Kid (Fever Ray, Glasser). However, the band is choosing to remain mum on any further details. Blonde Readhead’s Kazu Mazion released the following cryptic statement.

“I can’t say what Penny Sparkle is about just yet. 

I remember talking to Ed (from 4AD) one day and telling him that I had a vision that I was traveling to far away places to complete it.

 (Then) I landed in snowy slippery Stockholm….. and here.

 I fell in love with the music like falling for someone you’ve known for a long time. 

It was dreamy and sometimes was very stormy. 

At times I felt like a shepherd who was trying to herd five stallions into a yard (unsuccessfully). 

I felt like I was a link to everyone. I remained still and the others were constantly moving around it. 

I am not sure what Penny Sparkle is but I hope I offered to them as much as they offered me.

 I know that we have never made a record this way and if I could go back in time, I would do it exactly the same way again.”

What does it all mean? Perhaps they’ll drop further hints on tour.
