The secretly best synthpop band (yes, Ladytron) just announced a new album - their first since 2011. They will release it independently through PledgeMusic: https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/ladytron
No cover, title or track listing yet, but a short sample from a new(?) song, which sounds gorgeous (kinda like a chill Stereolab, Chromatics or Broadcast song).
A few more details:
Ladytron enter another chapter with their first new music in seven years.
Beginning with single ‘The Animals’, the group will be working in the coming months on a full length album to be released later in 2018.
The group have chosen Pledge Music as a way to record a new album with the direct participation of their audience.
By pledging you can be part of this record. Every pledge includes the “Access Pass,” which gives you entrée to exclusive updates running through the release of the record, a digital download of the album when released plus downloads of the band’s new single, “The Animals” and the remix by Vince Clarke as instant gratification tracks in March.
The same Vince Clarke of Erasure, Yazoo, VCMG and Depeche Mode.
