Parquet Courts new album 2018

Parquet Courts have announced a new album. On May 18, the band will release Wide Awake! via Rough Trade. The album is produced by Brian Burton aka Danger Mouse, and Andrew Savage says in a press release that the partnership is unconventional by design: “I personally liked the fact that I was writing a record that indebted to punk and funk, and Brian’s a pop producer who’s made some very polished records. I liked that it didn’t make sense.”

The first single is “Almost Had to Start a Fight/In And Out of Patience,” which can be heard below. Also, take a look at the album’s tracklist and artwork, as well as tour dates below.

Wide Awake! follows 2016’s Human Performance.
