[news] White Denim Update - New Song, LP in the Works

White Denim tracking new album!

Earlier this year, White Denim returned to the studios to record a follow-up album to last year's amazing Fits. According to their website (as of today), the band has the basic tracking complete. While the album is probably far from being finished and on shelves, it's nice to see new jams have been recorded.

And for those of you who'd like to get your ears on a new WD song, the band has contributed "Yo-Yo" to the Elysium benefit CD (purchased here via iTunes). Elysium is an institution that encourages working actors, artists, and musicians to volunteer their time and talent to children who are battling serious medical conditions and injury. While "Yo-Yo" isn't quite "new," US fans can finally get their hands on this UK b-side from the "I Start To Run" single. It's a great song, and buying it goes to a good cause. Other musicians on the compilation include Sonic Youth, Sleigh Bells, The Kills, and Black Mountain. Check it out.
