Published Nov 09, 2011Last month, retro pop enthusiasts Tennis let it slip that they were working on a follow-up to their debut disc Cape Dory with Black Keys member Patrick Carney manning the boards. Now we know the sophomore set, titled Young and Old, will arrive in February.
A press release from Fat Possum confirms that the imprint will release Young and Old on Valentine's Day (February 14). A tracklisting has yet to be revealed, but the band are teasing the release with a seven-inch single featuring a Carney-produced joint called "Origins" on the A-side, which you can stream below.
The flip, meanwhile, features a self-produced number called "Deep in the Woods." Forest Family issues the slab of wax on December 6.
Tennis will be also be hitting the West Coast this December with Brooklyn's Miniature Tigers. The nine-show trip sees them playing one Canadian gig, at Vancouver's Biltmore Cabaret on December 13. Check out the rest of the schedule below.
