Ra Ra Riot are preparing the release of their third album and to celebrate this fact have put new track ‘Dance With Me’ online to stream.
Beta Love, which will drop in the UK in March, is the group’s first album as a four-piece and was co-produced alongside Dennis Herring (Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello, Wavves). Speaking of the sessions, the band say:
“Making the record was a lot of fun for us, because we were in a completely different environment, trying a completely new approach. We’d been used to arriving at a session with every song totally arranged and figured out, but in Oxford, a lot of the creative decision-making happened in the studio, on the fly. We wanted to be outside of our collective comfort zone for this record. We wanted to be open to new things happening. There was a lot of building up and tearing down with Dennis—a lot of problem solving, a lot of trial and error, and that was really exciting for us.”
