Got an email with some pretty encouraging scans yesterday morning.
Kings of Convenience have completed their third album, which will drop at “the very end of September” and be followed by a tour, according to this postcard they emailed to fans. Written in Bergen, Norway on June 8, the full text is below.
To: Kings of Convenience fans in Mexico, France, UK, Japan, USA, Sverge (Sweden), Italia (Italy), Spania (Spain), Portugal, Brasil, Indonesia, Finland, Holland, Russia, Tyskland (Germany), Switzerland, Ireland, Canada, Korea, Norge (Norway):
Good things come to those who wait. We know it’s taken a while but finally we are done with our 3rd album. It will be released in the very end of September and after that we will go on tour. The album was recorded in studios in Italy and Bergen and in Erlend’s flat. See you soon!!!
Erlend & Eirik
Kings of Convenience are perhaps my favorite group of all time — percussive, neo-bossa nova guitar, Simon & Garfunkelesque harmonies, and a philosophy student’s lyrics sung with a non-native English speaker’s angular eloquence.
Have a listen and get excited!
