Parquet Courts have released a new video for ‘Freebird II’.
The track’s taken from new album ‘Wide Awake’, the follow-up to 2016’s ’Human Performance’, which came out earlier this year.
The record saw the band team up with producer Danger Mouse. “We definitely didn’t go into it thinking we wanted to have something more polished,” bassist Sean Yeaton ponders in the July issue of Dork.
“But I think it had come to the point for us, especially after working on that record with Daniele Luppi [2017 collaborative album ‘Milano’], which was our first experience working with a producer, that it adds a lot to the creative process.
“To have this other set of ears to help out with creative differences that come up, and by having another person there who isn’t playing the parts but is hearing you trying to work them out, provides a good sounding board.
“Danger Mouse was integral because he never tried to take ownership over the idea, or the feeling of songs.”
