Girlpool talk details of upcoming new album ‘Powerplant’

The record looks set to come out next year and will feature a full-band behind the DIY duo
A huge part of 2015’s heart for us was Girlpool’s debut LP ‘Before The World Was Big’, and now the duo have pointed that the follow-up to that record looks set for release in 2017.

Speaking to The Fader, the duo (made up of Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad) confirmed that the album is set to be called ‘Powerplant’ and was originally meant to be recorded with Jeff Tweddy of Wilco before those pesky scheduling conflicts got in the way.

Explaining how the record came about, Cleo said:

“We were gonna go to L.A. to practice with the people we wanted to play on the record, but then we got there and we were like — we have a finished album, we have three weeks to be here, but we would wait four months to record in Chicago and we’d have to fly out the people to play on it. Let’s just make the record now”

According to reports the record is set to be 12 tracks long and chopping in at 28 minutes long, so everything you’d ever want from a Girlpool album but even bigger.

While we wait for 2017 to usher us back into Girlpool’s world, check out ‘Before The World Was Big’ standout ‘Chinatown’
