Heads Up, the highly anticipated third album from Los Angeles-based band Warpaint, is set for release September 23 via Rough Trade Records. The first song from the new album, “New Song,” premieres today.
Heads Up was recorded after the band spent 2015 apart working on solo projects and their own endeavors. Reuniting in January of this year, the band invited producer Jacob Bercovici—with whom they had worked on their debut EP Exquisite Corpse—into the studio to begin work on the new LP. The band spent time recording in their House on the Hill studio in downtown Los Angeles, their own home studios and Papap’s Palace, and—for the first time ever—recorded in pairs and alone rather than as a full band, allowing for a new creative freedom.
