Camera Obscura have revealed further details of their fifth studio album, Desire Lines, set for release on June 3rd/4th via 4AD.
Desire Lines started life in 2011 - shortly after the release of their 4AD debut My Maudlin Career – as demos put together in singer Tracyanne Campbell’s flat. Revisiting those songs a couple of years later, the band made the decision to decamp from their native Glasgow to Portland, Oregon to work with GRAMMY-nominated producer Tucker Martine (R.E.M., Spoon, My Morning Jacket), enlisting Neko Case and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James to contribute vocals along the way.
