Published Jun 18, 2019Frankie Cosmos are headed back our way with a new album. Titled Close It Quietly, the U.S. indie troupe will release the album on September 6 via Sub Pop. What's more, they've given us lead single "Windows" and mapped out a massive world tour, complete with Canadian dates.
The album marks the fourth studio album from Frankie Cosmos and the proper follow-up to 2018's Vessel. According to a press release, "Close It Quietly is a continual reframing of the known, taking the band's trademark micro-universe and upending it, spilling outwards into a swirl of referentiality that's a marked departure from earlier releases, imagining and reimagining motifs and sounds throughout the album."
Our first taste of the album comes via "Windows," which has arrived via a new video directed by Eliza Doyle and Frankie Cosmos leader Greta Kline.
"This song takes place during the waiting period of healing, not knowing how to proceed or how to find the path to forgiveness," Kline said of "Windows" in a statement. "The inner versus the outer — learning to see yourself as part of the whole. For me the lyrics cover some of the slow movements of relationships, the shifts that occur in ways of thinking over time."
Watch the video for "Windows" below.
In addition to the new album, Frankie Cosmos have announced a huge world tour, which will hit both the U.S. and Canada this fall. Canadian dates include Montreal (September 20), Toronto (September 21) and Vancouver (November 2).
