We’re still in a bit of shock that the B-52s have returned with their first studio album in sixteen years. SIXTEEN YEARS! The new album, Funlex, was recorded in their hometown of Athens, GA, which will mark 32 years together as a band. We now know that the album will hit stores on March 25 via Astralwerks. You can peep the tracklisting by clicking here.
For a little flashback to their earlier days, check out this black & white film of the band from 1978 performing “Rock Lobster.”
