Called Modern Pressure, the new LP — Romano's seventh solo album — was recorded in Finnsäs, Sweden, with longtime engineer Kenneth Meehan. A press release compares it to the work Lee Hazlewood, Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg, Randy Newman and Bob Dylan. It also promises the album presents "observational scrutiny beneath the overcast atmosphere 2016 and vigorously tackles the present-day heaviness we contain in the jotting bones our guilty expressions."
The album will arrive on May 19 New West Records/You've Changed. Before it lands, you can watch a video for lead single "Roya" below.
As previously reported, Romano also just released the new Ancient Shapes tape Silent Rave.
