The Books
The Way Out
(Temporary Residence)
Releasing: July 2010

The Books have jumped from Tomlab to Temporary Residence for their upcoming album. On their Tumblr page, they claim that placing the new record was frought with difficulties: “Finding a home for this record was a pain in the ass. Everyone I’ve played it for says it’s our best, most daring record yet, and still, all of the labels we admired that we thought would go for it wouldn’t touch it.” The band has given us an early taste with the MP3 of “Beautiful People”.
