Widowspeak Announce 'Almanac,' Share New Song

Brooklyn's Widowspeak debuted in 2011 with a self-assured and moody album recorded by Jarvis Taveniere of Woods. Now they've announced its follow-up: Almanac is due Jan. 22 from Captured Tracks. This time, Widowspeak recruited Kevin McMahon, a producer who worked on a number of fantastic contemporary albums: Real Estate's Days, Titus Andronicus' The Monitor, and Swans' The Seer.

Widowspeak have also shared the Fleetwood Mac-inspired album art and the LP's first single. "Ballad of the Golden Hour" shows off the band's melodic loneliness in the form of Molly Hamilton's fantastic voice and guitarist Robert Thomas' slightly twangy leads.  Take a listen below and check out the track list along with upcoming tour dates.
