The Mountain Goats have announced another new album. It’s called Dark in Here and it’s out June 25 via Merge. The new LP was recorded the week between their most recent releases—last year’s Getting Into Knives and Songs for Pierre Chuvin—at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The lead single “Mobile” features Muscle Shoals session players Spooner Oldham on electric piano and Will McFarlane on lead guitar. Check it out below.
