It’s been four years since The New Pornographers previous album, Together. So it’s good news to hear that they will release their new album Brill Bruisers on August 26 via Matador Records. The album does include both Neko Case and Dan Bejar
Here’s a quote from frontman A.C. Newman about the album:
This is a celebration record. After periods of difficulty, I am at a place where nothing in my life is dragging me down and the music reflects that.
This vibe is certainly felt throughout their fantastic comeback single (and title track) “Brill Bruisers”, which is just classic New Pornographers in every sense.

Enjoy it below, where I have also shared the album’s tracklist and their new tour dates, which includes a November 17 performance in NYC at Hammerstein Ballroom.
