Deap Vally – the Los Angeles garage-rock duo of Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards – have announced their upcoming album MARRIAGE. The follow-up to 2016’s Femejism arrives on November 19 via Cooking Vinyl. The band has also previewed the LP with the new single ‘Magic Medicine’, which follows previous cuts ‘High Horse’ featuring KT Tunstall and Peaches and ‘Look Away’ with Warpaint’s jennylee. Check out the video for ‘Magic Medicine’ and find the album artwork and tracklist below.
“‘Magic Medicine’ is a song five years in the making, born in Allen Salmon’s Nashville studio, and raised in Josiah Mazzaschi’s Cave Studio back in LA,” Troy and Edwards said of the new single in a statement. “Initially a song about being high on what-have-you (body chemistry, lab chemistry, nature’s chemistry) the lyrics have taken on a new meaning in the era of coronavirus, a moment when more than ever we need a miracle cure to make it safe to have fun and feel free again.”
Of the album, they added:
Being in a band is like being in a marriage: sometimes it’s magical, sometimes it’s unbearably challenging. To reinvigorate that marriage we’ve made album three a genre-bending experiment with new collaborators and instrumentation that push the limits of what has previously defined us.
MARRIAGE is our musical Rumspringa, if you will. We’re breaking free of the rigid creative constraints within which we previously existed (two members, two instruments, two voices). Writing with the calibre of musicians that we did on this record – like jennylee, KT Tunstall, Peaches, and Jennie Vee – was an unforgettable experience, and we’re so happy to have the result of our creative rebirth eternalised in MARRIAGE.
Deap Vally’s new album will also follow this year’s Digital Dream and American Cockroach EPs, as well as their 2020 LP with the Flaming Lips, Deap Lips.
