Two months after joining the 4AD stable (alongside Bon Iver, The National, St. Vincent and Deerhunter), Efterklang have announced details of Magic Chairs, the band’s third full-length studio album and their first for the label.

Talking about Magic Chairs the band say “We are very proud of this record and feel that it introduces a new Efterklang sound. The songs draw inspiration from pop song structures, created and recorded with a live approach and we wanted to display every sound source clearly so that the listener can hear every ingredient of the music.”

The artwork was designed and art directed once again by long-time collaborators Hvass & Hannibal with the help of photographer Brian Buchard for the actual album cover, which is taken at Thorvaldsens Museum in Copenhagen.
