Since Chairlift released Does You Inspire You back in 2008, its members have kept busy working on new material and collaborating with like-minded indie acts. Patrick Wimberly, one half of the experimental pop duo, has been flexing his production chops as of late. Most notably, he worked with Das Racist and remixed the One AM Radio. As for Chairlift’s better half, Caroline Polachek provided vocals for Washed Out’s “You and I.”
Yet all the while, Chairlift was slowly but surely putting together a follow-up album. During the course of 18 months spent recording in New York and London, they recorded Something. The album was produced with Kylie Minogue/Hot Chip collaborator Dan Carey. He also mixed the majority of the album, though two cuts were handled by Alan Moulder, who’s known for his work with My Bloody Valentine and Nince Inch Nails.
Something isn’t slated to drop until Jan. 24 via Columbia Records, though we heard a preview of the record last month with “Amanaemonesia.” You can revisit that track’s video and view Chairlift’s upcoming tour dates below.
