Sub Pop Signs CocoRosie!


Though it might strain the limits of imagination to even consider the possibility of Sub Pop’s early 2010 release schedule getting any busier or better, we are exceedingly pleased and proud to announce that we’ll be releasing the new CocoRosie album Grey Oceans on May 11th!

For those of you not already well-acquainted with the band, CocoRosie are two American-born sisters, Sierra and Bianca, who started making music together in Paris in 2003. Their first album, La Maison de Mon Rêve, was released in 2004 and their second album, Noah’s Ark, followed in 2005. Their third and most recent album, The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn, came out in 2007. All three of these albums were released worldwide on Touch and Go Records and earned positive critical acclaim both overseas and at home.

The nomadic duo (currently and temporarily residing in New Mexico) spent much of 2008 writing and recording in Buenos Aires, Melbourne, Berlin, New York, and Paris, finding amazing and diverse musicians to collaborate along the way. The result is their 11-song Sub Pop debut, Grey Oceans, due out May 11th, 2010.
