Michael Gira has already bellowed in our collective ears that the new Swans album “IS NOT A REUNION,” but while we struggle to think of what to call it (a reconvening? A get-together of old buddies?), further details on that record have now surfaced. Gira’s own Young God label will release My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky on September 21.
That mooted Devendra Banhart collaboration—Gira released some of Banhart’s earlier albums—will be on a pleasant little ditty titled “You Fucking People Make Me Sick,” which suggests a return to the ill-feeling of older Swans records like “Raping a Slave.” The Banhart track also reportedly features Gira’s three year-old daughter, Saoirse, who is presumably growing up fast.
