Busy composeing original scores for four full-length theatrical works by Robert Wilson ("Peter Pan", "Pushkin's Fairy Tales", "Edda" and "Jungle Book") and now creating "The Tempest" for upcoming premiers, as well as following their Chance the Rapper collaboration "Roo" in August, the duo CocoRosie have announced a new album. "Put the Shine On" is sisters Bianca and Sierra Casady’s first studio LP since 2015’s Heartache City. The new album arrives March 6, 2020, via Marathon Artists, and includes the single "Lamb and the Wolf", as well as another new track called "Smash My Head".
“For us, our song ‘Smash My Head’ is a running-on-fire cry from the teenage heart, an inner scream we never dared to let out. The song climaxes in an exaltation, an expression of ecstatic death. It journeys from a hard-knock desert childhood scene to a transcendent cosmic passing to another realm", said them in a statement.
About "Lamb & the Wolf", they've said: "It's a sweltering summer jam to funk to. It's a whole new set of colors for us; yellow, orange, red and green mostly. There's something kind of early Sesame Street about it but you can dig for yourself. Get on your sweatbands and prepare for some high kicks and karate chops or at least loud claps. We hope you enjoy".
This year they presented, as well, the second series of songs written for a collaboration with the Kronos Quartet at their Jazz Festival in San Francisco, which is leading into a recorded album with songs composed by CocoRosie in the near future.
