Drag City has announced the details behind the upcoming Joanna Newsom release, titled Ys (pronounced ‘eees’). At just 5 songs, it will be a short release, but quality has been stressed by the announcement. Quality over quantity, perhaps? The album does run for 55 minutes, so I guess we can expect long songs.
Recorded by Steve Albini, mixed by Jim O' Rourke, and all the work was done at Abby Road Studios. They went all analogue for this one, so we can expect rich sounds. The album will feature arrangements from Beach Boys partner in crime Van Dyke Parks -- Joanna hangs with some serious company.
