Frankie Cosmos have announced their fourth studio album, ‘Close It Quietly’.

Recording close to home — at Brooklyn’s Figure 8 Studios— grounded the band. ‘Close It Quietly’ is a continual reframing of the known, taking the band’s trademark micro-universe and upending it, spilling outwards into a swirl of referentiality that’s a marked departure from earlier releases, imagining and reimagining motifs and sounds throughout the album.

Ahead of the album the band have released a video for lead single ‘Windows’. It’s typically kooky indie rock, strong on chorus’ and pointed lyrics, that comes in close and sidesteps at the last minute.

“This song takes place during the waiting period of healing, not knowing how to proceed or how to find the path to forgiveness. The inner versus the outer- learning to see yourself as part of the whole. For me the lyrics cover some of the slow movements of relationships, the shifts that occur in ways of thinking over time,”  says Greta Kline.

Frankie Cosmos have also announced a world tour in support of their new record.

‘Close It Quietly’ is released September 6th on Sub Pop
