Watch Calexico debuting a track from their forthcoming album... outside the studio where they originally recorded it.
The band will release Algiers on 10 September, named after the area of New Orleans where the sessions took place, and you can watch them performing a track from the record, Splitter, in the city above.
"We were talking about wanting to go to Europe and record, but we never get our shit together in time to make plans that far in advance. So where do you go that is nearby and has a European feel? New Orleans," explained the band's Joey Burns of their choice of location.
"I've always loved New Orleans," added bandmate John Convertino. "I knew that just by being in that place, with all that history that is so rooted in music, things would be different. You can't help but pick up the vibe. The air itself moves you in a way that is very different from anywhere else."
Along with the live session, you can also listen to the album version of the track (below). Plus check out Para, also from the record, which is a former track of the day.
