FINALLY. I have been looking forward to the announcement of this record for longer than I care to admit, but alas, the wait is over. Amor De Días, the group formed by The Clientele’s Alasdair MacLean and Lupe Núñez-Fernández of Pipas, just announced their debut album, Street of the Love of Days, which Merge Records will release on May 17th. However, this is hardly just the product of two people. Louis Philippe, whom The Clientele has relied on occasionally for string arrangements, makes an appearance, as do Galaxie 500’s Damon and Naomi, among others. Seems like forever ago that I posted “New Wine”, which you can still hear here, but now Merge has graciously revealed a second track, “Bunhill Fields”. It’s an immensely flavorful and upbeat tune, brimming with horns, strings and Lupe’s gorgeously breathy vocals – proving that the wait was well worth it. Stream or download the song below and preorder your copy on CD or LP from Merge.
