1064_mysadcaptains_cover.12-12-2013

We are very pleased to announce the release of our third album, ‘Best of Times’, which will be out on Monday 17th March. It’s our first release on Bella Union, a label we’re all big fans of and that we are very proud to call home.

The album is up for preorder here and you can listen to the opening track, ‘Goodbye’, right now below:

‘Best of Times’ was produced by us and recorded at Bella Union Studios in Hackney with the help of Iggy B. We then sent the tracks off to be mixed by Larry Crane at Jackpot! in Portland, OR, he of Elliott Smith, Stephen Malkmus and Tape Op magazine fame, who also mixed our last record.

The vinyl version of the album (which also includes a CD copy) comes as a beautiful limited edition book, featuring nine original artworks by Nick, Dan, Ryan Mosley, Phoebe Unwin, Tim Rutili of Califone, Henna Vainio, Neal Tait, Richard T. Walker and Phil Goss. We’ll be sharing more details about it and will also be announcing some live dates soon.

The record’s about time that’s passed, time that’s present and time that’s to come. We look forward to people getting their ears around it.

Ed, Jim, Nick and Dan
