Durand Jones & The Indications Announce New Album ‘Private Space,’ Share Single & Confirm September 2021 Tour
Durand Jones & the Indications confirmed their third studio album, Private Space, arrives through Dead Oceans/Colemine Records on July 30. The quintet will hit the road this fall for a tour of North America in support of Private Space which features lead single “Witchoo.”
The Indiana-birthed band features vocalist Durand Jones, drummer/vocalist Aaron Frazer, guitarist Blake Rhein, keyboardist Steve Okonski and bassist Mike Montgomery. Durand Jones & The Indications recorded the 10-track follow-up to 2019’s American Love Call at a cabin in upstate New York. Contributors include vibraphonist Joel Ross, an eight-piece string section and 79.5 members on backing vocals.
“At the end of the day, I just want people to close their eyes and forget where they are. Just the way a Stevie Wonder album does for me,” said Jones regarding Private Space. “There’s a lot of the band’s original DNA, but it’s not a time capsule,” added Rhein of the change to the band’s sound from American Love Call to their forthcoming LP. “We’re actually revealing more of ourselves, a deeper and broader look into who we are as musicians and fans,” noted Frazer.
Durand Jones & The Indications are currently slated to open their fall tour at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club on September 7. From there, the five-piece heads to Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Washington D.C., Chicago, Minneapolis, Denver, Salt Lake City, San Diego and Los Angeles ahead of a tour-closing appearance at The Ohana Fest in Dana Point, California on September 24. Tickets for headlining shows go on sale this Friday, May 14 at 10 a.m. local time.
The band tapped Weird Life to direct the “Witchoo” video. Members of the band and their friends are seen moving from performing live to partying backstage. Watch Durand Jones & The Indications’ “Witchoo” video below:
