Devendra Banhart Signs to Warner, Plans to Release New Album



This October, freak folk fans around the world will have even more reason to rejoice: At some point during that month, Devendra Banhart will release his latest album via Warner. The cover art for the album is above, and the album is titled:

What
Will We
Be

Intentionally or not, the title brings to mind the poetry of ee cummings (both in terms of the spacing and the content). The album was recorded with Band of Bees' Paul Butler, and features a backing band of Devendra regulars, including Megapuss' Greg Rogove, Little Joy's Rodrigo Amarante, Luckey Remington, and Noah Georgeson.
