Devendra Banhart To Release New Album, "What Will We Be"

Devendra Banhart exploded on the international music scene in 2002 quickly winning a coterie of devoted fans as well as an unusually hefty amount of critical kudos right from the outset. His latest release is "What Will We Be," recorded in a sleepy Northern California town throughout the Spring of 2009 co-produced by Banhart and Paul Butler (from UK outfit Band Of Bees). The international media's acclaim and the size of his audience both at home and abroad earned by his debut "Oh Me Oh My The Way The Day Goes By The Sun Is Setting Dogs Are Dreaming Lovesongs Of The Christmas Spirit" was impressive to begin with and has increased dramatically with each subsequent release. "What Will We Be" is his label debut for Warner Brothers Records.

The basic recording line-up- with Banhart on vocals and guitar; Noah Georgeson (producer of Banhart's last two albums, Little Joy, Bert Jansch and Joanna Newsom) on guitar and backing vocals, Greg Rogove (Priestbird) on drums and backing vocals; Luckey Remington (The Pleased) on bass and vocals and Rodrigo Amarante (Los Hermanos, Little Joy) on guitar and backing vocals- also included all the musicians involved played a part in arranging the songs recorded.
