John Cale Announces New Album, Shift Adventures In Nookie Wood

It's with great honor that Domino imprint Double Six announces the release of John Cale's forthcoming full-length album, out October 2nd, 2012.

Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood is a title to set tongues wagging and minds wondering, but for an album that seems born of a return to John's youth, it seems safely apt in its mischievousness.

Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood is the result of sessions held at Cale's LA studio. Days were spent experimenting with MPCs, pounding fists onto pianos, manipulating glitches and lots of signature viola drone while patiently waiting for songs to reveal themselves. There was also a spontaneous session with Danger Mouse to create the opening track, "I Wanna Talk 2 U."

As a producer Cale has reached a new plateau on this record. At the albums most maximal, it feels like looking at a collection of precious stones. Myriads of differently colored and textured surfaces carefully placed together, each finding their own space to beckon the ear. It's a blend of chaos and beauty in equal measure and a testament to the exploratory spirit at work which ensures there's always something new to the ears on a John Cale record.

Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood will be available on gatefold heavyweight vinyl, CD and digital.
