Published Jun 07, 2012Having just announced a large North American tour earlier this week, it was only a matter of time before Ariel Pink would drop details on the next album to be released as Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti.
Following the group's breakthrough 2010 effort Before Today, the next LP has been officially dubbed Mature Themes, which is set to drop on August 20 via 4AD.
In an interview with V Magazine earlier this year, Pink explained that this album is very much a band effort, saying, "Now they kind of understand me. It's all very intuitive. There's no demos, nothing to fall back on. It really is a step in the evolution of the band, and it's very exciting for me."
While we can't offer many more details about Mature Themes just yet, the first single from the project has hit the web. The track is actually a cover of Donnie and Joe Emerson's "Baby," and it includes guest vocals from upcoming tourmate Dâm-Funk.
In addition to appearing on the album, the song will be issued as a limited one-sided twelve-inch single on July 9. Have a listen below.
