Earlier this year, we spoke with The Go! Team’s Ian Parton about the band’s upcoming third album. Today, additional information has surfaced regarding the project. Titled Rolling Blackouts, it’s due out January 31st from Memphis Industries.

In an interview with Pitchfork, Parton revealed that Deerhoof and Best Coast will be making appearances on the disc. Says Parton, “We’ve got lots more singing on the record, and we have guest vocals. Satomi [Matsuzaki] from Deerhoof is on one song called “Secretary Song”, which is really heavy on office sound effects—typing and telephones and things like that. It’s got this “Mad Men” feel to it—a 60s office kind of feel. Satomi’s singing about hating being a secretary. Bethany [Cosentino] from Best Coast is singing on a couple songs, as well. We actually did it ages ago. That was recorded in late ‘09, so nobody had heard of her when I asked her to do it. I’m pretty pleased that she’s gone on to do well. I’m a real fan of Best Coast and that California feel. The song on which she sings has a jangly, girls-in-the-garage feel to it; it’s super-melodic.”
