LUNA — New LP + EP to be released September 22. First track revealed today!

Luna –  the New-York-CIty-based guitar band now scattered around the country – is happy to announce the upcoming release of A Sentimental Education, an album of covers, as well as an EP of 6 new Luna instrumentals entitled A Place Of Greater Safety.  Both will be released simultaneously  on September 22 via the Double Feature label.  The LP and EP mark the band’s first output since Luna’s last studio album Rendezvous, released 13 years ago.   Both the LP and EP were co-produced by Jason Quever (Papercuts) and recorded at Palmetto Recording in downtown Los Angeles.  On A Sentimental Education Luna tackle songs by the Cure, Mink DeVille, Fleetwood Mac, Mercury Rev and others. The Luna lineup remains the same as it was when they last recorded: Dean Wareham, Sean Eden, Lee Wall, Britta Phillips.

Today the band share the first single from A Sentimental Education, their take of Fleetwood Mac’s “One Together” which is off their 1970 album Kiln House, and written by guitarist Jeremy Spencer who departed the band in 1971 to join the Children of God.  LISTEN here.

Luna are taking pre-orders for these new releases as well as t-shirts, socks, posters and rare guitars via Pledge Music.
