(LOS ANGELES, Calif.) — Garbage (Shirley Manson, Steve Marker, Duke Erikson and Butch Vig) today announced “Strange Little Birds,” their sixth studio album, which will be released on June 10, 2016 on the band’s own label STUNVOLUME.
Working initially in Vig’s basement and then at Red Razor Sounds in Los Angeles, Garbage drew on a variety of sources, from their recent fan letters back to the albums they loved growing up. “The guiding principle was keeping it fresh, and relying on instinct both lyrically and musically”, said frontwoman Shirley Manson. “We fell in love with immediacy,” adds Vig.
“To me, this record, funnily enough, has the most to do with the first record than any of the previous records,” Manson says. “It’s getting back to that beginner’s headspace.” “In part,” she says, “that’s a result of not having anyone to answer to.”
Garbage will perform at various festivals and headlining shows across Europe this summer.
