Posted 01/17/2018

Guess/What? of Montreal is putting out a new album titled White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood and has shared the first single "Paranoiac Intervals/Body Dysmorphia," not to mention announcing a quaint little tour that only spans March to May. I know, that's a lot of super dope news to process all at once, so let's break it down:

White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood drops March 9th. You can pre-order it now on all your favorite formats. This album features six tracks, each clocking it at over 5 minutes long. Kevin Barnes shared with Stereogum the reasoning behind his new approach –

"Musically, I was very inspired by the extended dance mixes that people used to make for pop singles back in the ‘80s. It’s so cool how a lot of the 80’s hits had these really intricate and interesting longer versions that wouldn’t get played on the radio and could only be heard in the clubs. I used that template with these tracks, I wanted them all to feel like the extended “club edit” of album tracks."
So tap into your inner club kid, buy a glowing of Montreal wand (yes this is real life), and get to grooving:
