On their sixth official full-length recording, Sonny & The Sunsets joined forces with producer Merrill Garbus (tUnE-yArDs) to create Moods Baby Moods, their latest new-wave album. Due out on May 27 via Polyvinyl, the band shares their second single, “Moods” today, via NME.
“Working with Merrill was fabulous,” Sonny Smith told NME. “She got everything I was trying to do. It was a real click, right away and she helped that song really crystallize. That’s what you want from a producer, just someone to help you get things more and more in focus. She’s great.”
Last weekend, Dan Auerbach and his new band The Arcs were joined on stage by Smith himself, as they put their twist on an older Sonny song, “Too Young to Burn.” You can catch footage of their on-stage collaboration here.
