Garbage’s new album ‘Strange Little Birds’ is available now

Garbage’s sixth studio album ‘Strange Little Birds’ is now available in stores and at all digital retailers.

The album was recorded and produced by the band (Shirley Manson, Steve Marker, Duke Erikson and Butch Vig) in Los Angeles and released via their own STUNVOLUME Records. Strange Little Birds is the follow up to 2012’s heralded Not Your Kind of People.

You can watch their music video for the album’s single ‘Empty’ in the player above, which is directed by longtime collaborator Samuel Bayer.

Working initially in Vig’s basement and then at Red Razor Sounds in Los Angeles, Garbage drew on a variety of sources to inspire the album including recent fan letters back to the albums they loved when growing up.

“The guiding principle was keeping it fresh, and relying on instinct both lyrically and musically”, said frontwoman Shirley Manson. Strange Little Birds is “less fussed over” than anything Garbage has ever made. “We fell in love with immediacy,” adds Vig.

Some will hear echoes of Garbage’s 1995 debut album in Strange Little Birds, including Manson herself. “To me, this record, funnily enough, has the most to do with the first record than any of the previous records,” she says. “It’s getting back to that beginner’s headspace.” “In part,” she says, “that’s a result of not having anyone to answer to.”

Garbage are currently on the European leg of their tour which sees them perform in London next week at the Troxy in London on 13th June and Rock City in Nottingham on 14th June.
