SWANS sign to Mute and plan new album

SWANS have signed to Mute Records and have announced details of a new album, To Be Kind for 12th May. The album will be released on Mute (excluding North America), and Young God Records (North America).

It will be available as a triple vinyl album, a double CD, and a 2XCD Deluxe Edition that will include a live DVD. It will also be available digitally. Micahel Gira comments that, "In addition, I am thinking of releasing it as a USB “stick” / flashdrive (with special packaging), so that this ultimate, high quality version can be listened to from beginning to end, without interruption (the album is a little over 2 hours long)."

Special guests include St. Vincent and Little Annie.

Michael Gira will play a solo acoustic show on 12th March @ Church of St John-at-Hackney, London.
