Devendra Banhart’s upcoming album, tentatively titled ‘Smokey’ last spring, now has an
official release title ( label management run myspace alluded to this being the title of the album and I read it here (who would have ever thought wikipedia could be wrong??) of Vasu deva kutumbam. I’ll let you wordsmiths figure out what that translates to. The album will be finished in a week and has no set release date. It’s slated for release in ‘Mid 2007,’ so hopefully it’s the earlier part of the mid. The last I heard was the end of August, but these things tend to change. Expect a full supporting tour of the album to start shortly after.
Update: Vasu deva kutumbam translates to ‘universal brotherhood’ or ‘international community’. (Thanks S!)
