Swedish sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg have returned with their third studio effort this week and so far, the album entitled Stay Gold is pretty well-received by the critics. You can make up your own mind by checking it out in full since NME is still streaming the entire album.
Stay Gold was released in the UK/Europe on June 09, 2014 via Jagadamba/Columbia Records. US release followed on June 10. The album is available as download, CD and 12″ vinyl LP. You can buy it digitally from iTunes or order your physical copy of Stay Gold directly from First Aid Kit’s Store.
The set of ten new songs was recorded at ARC Studios in Omaha, Nebraska with producer Mike Mogis who also produced First Aid Kit’s previous album, 2012’s The Lion’s Roar. The album features the Omaha Symphony Orchestra and arrangements by Nate Walcott who collaborated with Danger Mouse’s Broken Bells before.
