Today RATATAT, the production duo of Evan Mast and Mike Stroud, have revealed plans to release their fifth studio album ‘Magnifique’ on XL Recordings.  The 14-track album includes the recently released single ‘Cream On Chrome’, which the duo debuted during their closing set at this year’s Coachella Festival. Last week RATATAT put out a video for ‘Intro’ (see above) that really whet our appetites for the new LP and all that we have come to expect from the outfit when they reveal new music, namely, exceptional, forward-thinking electronica. In support of ‘Magnifique’, RATATAT have already hit the road running with sold-out underplay shows in April and confirmed festival appearances at Primavera Sound, Governor’s Ball, Capital Hill Block Party and HARD Summer.
 
RATATAT announce brand new album plans…
Following up on the experimental sounds of LP3 and LP4, RATATAT return to their core guitar-driven sound on ‘Magnifique’ which was recorded over the course of four years in various studios in different locations including Jamaica (the country), upstate New York, Long Island, NY and their home studio in Brooklyn.
 
The art for ‘Magnifique’ includes a series of sketches drawn by Mast and Stroud during the recording sessions, including pedal steel guitar, the sound of a tiny 1940’s guitar amp found in a thrift store, and a cover song, their first ever, called “I Will Return” by Springwater (aka Phil Cordell). All in all, it is fair to argue that what you cn expect is an LP of real experimentation.

01. Intro

02. Cream On Chrome

03. Magnifique

04. Abrasive

05. Countach

06. Drift

07. Pricks Of Brightness
