Aussie pop favourites Gypsy & The Cat have this afternoon confirmed that their new album ‘Virtual Islands’ will hit stores across the country in early August.
The follow-up to the duo’s 2012 sophomore album ‘The Late Blue’ has been a long time coming, but Xavier and Lionel spent plenty of time in Japan (evidenced by the recent video clips for their singles ‘Inside Your Mind’ and ‘I Just Wanna Be Somebody Else’) and have come up with ten new shining diamonds that they hope will become firm fan favourites over the coming years.
“We [as a society] are very quick to say things are weird or uncomfortable, and I think the bullish artistic merit that comes out of Japan excites me to take Gypsy & the Cat into interesting places,” Xavier says of the new project.
To be released independently, ‘Virtual Islands’ will land at your favourite retailer on Friday August 05.
