Acclaimed US indie-electronica duo Phantogram – comprised of Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter – have announced details of their new album Three and an upcoming European Tour. To be released on September 16, Three is Phantogram’s first release on new UK label Fiction Records. This week Zane Lowe premiered the lead single “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” on Beats 1, and the band did their first interview with Pitchfork revealing the inspiration behind the track (read here). “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” is available now as an Instant Grat download with album pre-order.
Phantogram will be touring across the United States and Canada in the autumn before reaching Europe in November. The UK leg includes dates in Brighton, Manchester, Glasgow and a show at London’s Heaven on Wednesday 16 November. Ticket pre-sale available now from Dice, tickets go on general sale on Monday.
Since the release of their 2014 US breakthough album Voices, Phantogram have trekked across the globe playing live shows and festival dates, contributed features to everyone from A-Trak to Miley Cyrus and been sampled by Kanye West, The Game and A$AP Rocky, as well as releasing their debut BIG GRAMS LP with good friend and musical partner in crime, Big Boi of Outkast. The New York bred duo made writing stops at home and in Atlanta before picking back up in Los Angeles to record Three. Carter and Barthel shared duties on production and vocals, melding elements of rock, pop, hip-hop and electronic. The resulting sound leans darker and more psychedelic yet with some of the brightest and most introspective pop melodies they’ve delivered to date, truly making them genre-defying artists for the 21st century.
