Lali Puna Announce First Album Of New Material In Over Five Years

More than half a decade has elapsed since the release of "Faking The Books," Lali Puna's third (and hitherto most recent) long-player, but the band's impact on the climate of electronic rock music remains palpable. Along with sister-group The Notwist, this Munich-based quartet has helped map out the musical landscape for modern, experimentally minded pop music. Now, with "Our Inventions," the group's first album of new material to be released in over five years, Lali Puna continues to push the frontiers of their medium. The album will be released on April 1st via Morr Music, and features a collaboration with Yellow Magic Orchestra's Yukihiro Takahashi on the song, "Out There." The version appearing here is an alternate rendering of the track that appeared on Takahashi's "Page By Page" album in 2009.

Fronted by singer and keyboard player Valerie Trebeljahr, Lali Puna's line-up is completed by drummer Christoph Brandner (also of Tied & Tickled Trio), keyboard player Christian Heiß and Markus Acher (The Notwist). Over a decade of recording together this band have continued to grow in strength, confidence and studio expertise, cueing up a triumphant return to full operational capability on "Our Inventions."
