Looking to up the ante on the delivery of Bradford Cox's Atlas Sound project, 4AD has picked up the rights to the album Let the Blind Lead from Kranky Records and will release the album in full on May 5th. They'll make the work available outside of the U.S. and add a second disc of material.
Wanting additional creative outlets , Cox started in on Atlas Sound. He told Pitchfork last year in an interview:
"I definitely think of Deerhunter as a pop band, and it might be a weird pop band, but I still think of it as a pop band, and some of the stuff I do is really-- it doesn't fit into that range. The solo record idea, to me, seems kind of annoying and egotistical and cliché. But it's not to advance myself, it's not a careerist thing, it's just that I have ideas that I can't make work with a five piece rock band."
