The Walkmen, home to one of our favourite songs by the name of "The Rat" have found themselves a brand new home of their own with the people at Fat Possum Records.
The band released their previous album You & Me on New York-based indie Gigantic Music. Speaking briefly about the news, the band exclaimed: "We recently signed to the wonderful Fat Possum Records. We’ve been in the studio recording our new record with You & Me producer Chris Zane and can’t wait to share the results."
According to reports, the new album is almost done. Twenty-eight songs have been recorded so far, and thus the process of whittling must take place now. The band are as-yet-undecided as to the number of tracks, or indeed the title of their upcoming Fat Possum début.
