Garbage have announced that they will be releasing their sixth album, Strange Little Birds, on June 10th. It is the follow-up to 2012’s Not Your Kind of People, which was the band’s first album since 2005.
Strange Little Birds will come out on the band’s own label, STUNVOLUME.
“The guiding principle was keeping it fresh, and relying on instinct both lyrically and musically”, says Shirley Manson. Strange Little Birds is “less fussed over” than anything Garbage has ever made. “We fell in love with immediacy,” adds Butch Vig.
“To me, this record, funnily enough, has the most to do with the first record than any of the previous records. It’s getting back to that beginner’s headspace. In part, that’s a result of not having anyone to answer to,” Manson adds.
