Fanfarlo’s website was updated recently with the following statement concerning the status of their new album.

It sounds a bit looser than their last album, especially with the levity the flute part adds to it, so it will be interesting to see what direction the band takes on the new album.
“Dear everyone, we finished a new album. It’s the best one we’ve made. It’s not out yet, but we wanted you to be the first to have a listen, so here is a link to listen to the first song from it.

It is also the first song from our forthcoming third album, a record that in its own playfully serious / seriously playful way looks at human evolution and the weirdness of being this thing we call a person.”
