As part of its 25th anniversary celebrations, Jagjaguwar announced the upcoming release of This is a Mindfulness Drill, the second of four Jag Quarterly albums. Recorded by the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble alongside vocalists Sharon Van Etten, Perfume Genius and Moses Sumney, the album is described as a “fully reimagined reissue of Richard Youngs’ 1998 album Sapphie."
In addition to the announcement, Jagjaguwar shared the album's first single "Soon It Will Be Fire" featuring Sumney's soft but arresting harmonies over guitar-driven production. The album, along with a medidation version released exclusively on cassette, is set to drop on June 25.
The first Jag Quarterly release, Dilate Your Heart, dropped back in March.
