Seattle singer-songwriter Damien Jurado has announced the release of his tenth studio album via Secretly Canadian on February 21, 2012. The record will be called Maraqopa and it was recorded with Richard Swift who handled Jurado’s last record Saint Bartlett, which was released in 2010.
Maraqopa is said to expand on Jurado’s previous sound, building on his folky singer-songwriter sound and judging by the first track, “Nothing Is News,” it should work out just fine, seeing as it’s really good. Stream and/or download “Nothing Is News” using the Soundcloud player below, plus check out the tracklist for Maraqopa.
Tracklist for Maraqopa:
1. Nothing is the News
2. Life Away from the Garden
4. This Time Next Year
5. Reel to Reel6. Working Titles
7. Everyone a Star
8. So On, Nevada
9. Museum of Flight
10. Mountains Still Asleep
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
