Le Guess Who? blogs: Details Begin Surfacing for Swan’s First New Album in over a Decade

Michael Gira, the man behind Angels of Light and the Young God label (Devendra Banhart, Akron/Family), has thrilled fans recently by reviving his Swans project, announcing that he will release a new album this fall under the band’s moniker.

Gira will release his first Swans album since 1997, My Father Will Guide Me up a Rope to the Sky, this September. The record is currently being mixed at Trout Recordings, and features guest spots from Devendra Banhart, R.E.M. drummer Bill Rieflin, and Mercury Rev’s Grasshopper.
