Devendra Banhart details new LP

Releases

Devendra Banhart

Bearded folk bard Devendra Banhart has been sharing various particulars about his first LP since 2009, ‘Mala’, as will represent his first release for Nonesuch Records when it hits shops on 11 Mar. Banhart’s eighth original long player to date, it was recorded in LA on a vintage Tascam machine bought at a pawn shop, so that’s nice.

Says Banhart: “A lot of early hip hop had been made on the Tascam, and knowing my songs are not hip hop whatsoever, we thought it would be interesting to see how these kinds of songs would sound on equipment that was used to record our favourite rap”.

Have an official ‘Mala’ tracklisting, plus a Pitchfork-facilitated play of featured track ‘Für Hildegard von Bingen’, right this minute, if you like:
