Spencer Krug Dishes On New Swan Lake LP

Spencer Krug Dishes On New Swan Lake LP
There’s no denying Spencer Krug is one busy dude. The Montreal-based songwriter is in the midst of leading Sunset Rubdown across Europe, he has Wolf Parade’s At Mount Zoomer set to drop on June 17, and now he’s leaked word his third love, Swan Lake, has a new full-length on the horizon.

While recently speaking with the Bristol University radio station Burst, Krug revealed Swan Lake, his project with Dan Bejar of Destroyer and Frog Eyes’ Carey Mercer, have wrapped up recording their sophomore album. "Swan Lake just made another record. When it comes out, I don't know,” Krug told the station. "It hasn't been mixed yet; we just finished the recording.”

Krug also went on to say that, like the group’s debut, 2006’s Beast Moans, the new yet-to-be-named record is very much a collaborative affair, with the each songwriter bringing his own contributions and then mixing them all up into what eventually becomes Swan Lake.

"[Recording] is very deliberately, very outwardly ‘Everyone bring X amount of songs,’ and I'll bring a whole song to the project and be like ‘This is what I would like you guys to do on this,’ but their styles still get infused into the end result. That's the idea,” Krug said. "It's a collaboration and we talk a lot in that project about everything, but in the beginning stages, it's very much everyone brings, like, four songs. Finished songs."

Krug didn’t say when we could expect the new album, but it’s safe to say it will hit shops sometime after Wolf Parade’s busy touring schedule, which gets into full swing next month.
