Calexico are releasing a new album, The Thread That Keeps Us, on January 26 via ANTI-. Previously they shared a lyric video for its first single, “End of the World With You.” Now they have shared a lyric video for another song from the album, “Voices in the Field.” The lyric video features the lyrics written out on postcards. They have also announced some tour dates. Check out the song and dates below.

The album was recorded with the band’s longtime engineer Craig Schumacher at a house studio near the Northern California coast known as the Panoramic House but nicknamed “Phantom Ship” by Calexico vocalist/guitarist Joey Burns and drummer John Convertino. A press release describes the studio as such: “The sprawling Stinson Beach home was built partly from shipyard-salvaged timber and cobblestones unearthed from the streets of San Francisco.”

Burns had this to say about the album in a previous press release: “There’s a little more chaos and noise in the mix than what we’ve done in the past…. Whenever we’re writing and we come up with something that feels too familiar, someone will end up saying, ‘That feels good, but let’s keep going and see what else we can uncover.’ It’s been really important to the arc of this band’s evolution for us to always keep on trying new things.”

The Thread That Keeps Us is the follow-up to 2015’s Edge of Sun.
