Even though Low's output has gotten mildly more upbeat since 1999's Secret Name, "Just Make it Stop", the second taste of their upcoming album, is still a surprise, with it's nearly danceable beat and breezy folk melodies. The Invisible Way is Low's tenth studio album (the band will celebrate its twentieth anniversary this year) and their first produced by Jeff Tweedy in his Chicago studio. Low were converted when they heard demos of some Tweedy-produced Mavis Staples tracks. Immediately, "plans were made then and there". The band helpfully gave us a list of what new things we could expect from the new album, including five Mimi-sung tracks and lots of piano.
The Invisible Way is out on March 19th via Sub Pop.
