Mogwai will release a new album, Every Country’s Sun, on September 1 through their own Rock Action label.
The group recorded the record – their ninth proper studio LP – with producer Dave Fridmann at his Tarbox Road Studios in Cassadaga, New York; Mogwai previously worked with Fridmann on their 1999 album Come On Die Young and 2001’s Rock Action.
