Modesto, California's Grandaddy have revealed that their fourth album, tentatively titled Sumday, is nearly complete. Speaking to Pitchfork, Grandaddy main-man Jason Lytle said that recording is finished, mixing is almost done, and a spring release date is being targeted. Although it hasn't been nailed down, Lytle is "pretty sure" that the release will be a two-disc set. The follow-up to the band's critically acclaimed 2000 album The Sophtware Slump was recorded completely in Lytle's home studio, where he also played the role of producer with his long-time friend Lucky Lew.
As previously reported, Grandaddy has started their own label, Sweat Of The Alps, and will be releasing a pair of albums shortly. The first will be from now-disbanded band Arm Of Roger, with another from Built Like Alaska coming shortly thereafter.
