Low Release New Track "Just Make It Stop"


Sub Pop Records is excited to announce that Duluth, MN, trio Low are releasing the first song from their 10th record, The Invisible Way.  The album cover for the record is now available for posting and the final tracklisting is below. The Invisible Way will be released on March 19 (the 18th in the UK). Coincidentally, the release marks Low’s 20th anniversary as a band. The Invisible Way was produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, engineered by Tom Schick and recorded in Wilco’s studio in Chicago, IL, during the fall of 2012.

“Low has made so many great records over the years, so I was pleasantly surprised they wanted to work with me at the loft,” said Tweedy. “I felt privileged to work with them and be a part of this new record.”

The Invisible Way finds Low’s majestic melancholy in full bloom yet distinguishes itself with its starker, unadorned soundscapes, layered harmonies and drummer/vocalist extraordinaire Mimi Parker singing lead on five of the 11 songs. The album tackles large issues (“the songs are about intimacy, the drug war, the class war, plain old war war, archaeology and love,” says Sparhawk) in a manner that plays a stunning counterpoint to the sublime hush of the music.

NPR’s All Songs Considered highlighted The Invisible Way in its “2013 Winter Music Preview.” You can view the list of records they are looking forward to and listen to them HERE
