TUNE Carnival Youth - Phantom Planet
New single 'Birthday' out now
Latvian indie rock band Carnival Youth have just published ‘Birthday' – the first single from their upcoming third album 'Good Luck' which is set for release on August 16th. It’s available as a double single along with a track 'Phantom Planet'.
“This song was born in an old house by a lake deep in Latvia's countryside. It felt careless and celebratory, even too naive sometimes. It's interesting how this one day each year makes us feel so special that we can forget about everything else and there are no more responsibilities. That day we feel like we can be the happiest, but, of course, it's just a beautiful illusion,” tells Emils Kaupers of Carnival Youth.
The new album 'Good Luck' was recorded last summer in Red Bull Studios in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It’s produced by the band’s long-time collaborator Gatis Zakis and mixed by the Grammy winning producer Nicolas Verhnes, who has previously worked with Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Dirty Projectors, Wild Nothing, The War on Drugs and others. Master was done by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound in NYC and his work includes artists like The National, MGMT, Interpol and Arcade Fire.
The new album consists of 12 songs and the release of it will be celebrated with the band’s most excessive tour so far which will start in autumn - dates TBA.
The band won the European Border Breakers Award at Eurosonic in 2016.
