Nearing five years since the release of their last album, BADBADNOTGOOD is officially back in action.
On Thursday morning, the group announced a follow-up to their 2016 album, IV, is locked and loaded for release this fall. The nine-track project, titled Talk Memory, is out on October 8th via XL Recordings, featuring a number of collaborations with Brazilian symphonic psyche specialist, Arthur Verocai (who recently appeared on the new Hiatus Kaiyote album, Mood Valiant,) as well as Terrace Martin, Karriem Riggins, Brandee Younger, and ambient pioneer Laraaji. The album is currently up for pre-order on vinyl through the label’s site along with the group’s website, where you can cop an exclusive pink and blue colored variant.
The album’s announcement is paired with the arrival of a searing new single in “Signal From The Noise,” where the group flips from spacious piano and flute trills to high-octane prog-rock screed (and back) in a dizzying flash. It marks the group’s second transmission of the last calendar year following “The Chocolate Conquistadors,” a funk-fueled link-up with the late MF DOOM released in 2020 as part of a recent Grand Theft Auto Online expansion.
