The Feelies to Release First Album in 20 Years This Spring

The Feelies to Release First Album in 20 Years This Spring
Way back in 2008, we reported that pivotal jangle pop outfit the Feelies had reunited to plays shows and possibly record a new album. We still haven't heard any new studio material from the band, but they have now confirmed that a new record is on the way and expected out this spring via Bar/None.

Slicing Up Eyeballs points to a new Facebook update by the band's publicist that reads, "Feelies… have completed recording basic tracks for a new album at Water Music in Hoboken [NJ]." The band's Glenn Mercer and Bill Million are producing, and Water Music's Sean Kelly is engineering.

When the album comes out in 2011, it will be two decades since the band's last LP, Time for a Witness, which was released in 1991. Last year, Bar/None reissued the Feelies' first two albums: 1980's Crazy Rhythms and 1986's The Good Earth. Shortly after, Mercer told Exclaim!, "We've talked about recording another record. So our focus is to write more songs and record them."
