Camera Obscura news

Camera Obscura's new album Desire Lines is due out June 4 (a day before in the UK/EU). It was produced by Tucker Martine (R.E.M., Spoon, My Morning Jacket) and comes nearly four years after the Scottish band's 4AD Records debut CD My Maudlin Career.

Singer Tracyanne Campbell said, “Of all our records this was pretty much the most challenging to write, partly because of the situation we found ourselves in with having to take such a long and uncertain amount of time out, but also because it would be record number five and we were getting harder and harder to please.
"Working in the US with southern gentleman Tucker Martine was a positive experience. He brought a certain calmness to recording that wasn’t there before. We were also delighted to have Neko Case and Jim James sing on the record too. What a treat."
Camera Obscura have a touring run in North America with She & Him already announced, a UK tour around the album’s release and even more shows in North America.
