mum announce new album for September; watch “Toothwheels” video now

Icelandic band múm will return with a brand new album this September, four years after the wishy-washy Sing Along To Songs You Don’t Know. The new album, entitled Smilewound, sees a slight shake up in the band’s ever-changing lineup, this time including the the return of third founding member Gyða Valtýsdóttir. The new album will be released on 17th September on Morr Music, and will feature eleven tracks, the last of which will be the collaborative effort the band made with popstar Kyle Minogue for the 2012 film Jack & Diane.

Recorded in the band’s own studio (an old Baltic farmhouse) and on the kitchen table after dinner, among other places, Smilewound is said to be airier and looser than previous records, and if the new single “Toothwheels” is anything to go by, then the band have returned to an electronic base, and for the first time in recent memory, they sound like they’re deepening their style. You can check out the video for “Toothwheels” below, which is a jigsaw collaboration between múm, Árni Rúnar Hlöðversson & Bruno Granato. Below that you can check out the tracklisting, and above you’ll see the artwork (had you not already guessed). “Toothwheels” is now available as a 7″ and download, via A Number Of Small Things.
