Listen to the Mountain Goats’ new album, Goths

John Darnielle’s the Mountain Goats release their latest album Goths on May 19th. NPR are streaming it from today and you can listen to it here. For their 16th full-length album, Darnielle takes a conceptual detour. As its title suggests, it’s about growing up goth — about establishing a place for yourself among other outcasts — but it also finds the band shedding guitars and adding a fourth permanent member in multi-instrumentalist Matt Douglas.

Goths was recorded at Blackbird Studios, Nashville; produced by Brandon Eggleston; and mixed by Scott Solter. Woodwinds were arranged and played by Matt Douglas.

The Mountain Goats have also announced a European tour which kicks off 5th October in Leeds.
