    Duluth, Minnesota indie rockers Low will return with a new album, Ones and Sixes, on September 11th. Due out through Sub Pop, the 12-track LP marks the band’s 11th to date. While Jeff Tweedy helped produce its predecessor, 2013’s The Invisible Way, the upcoming record was co-produced by the band and engineer BJ Burton at Justin Vernon’s April Base Studios in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

    In a press release, guitarist/vocalist Alan Sparhawk spoke about the album:

    “In our 20+ years of writing songs, I’ve learned that no matter how escapist, divergent, or even transcendent the creative process feels, the result is more beholden to what is going on at the moment. It’s hard to admit that one is so influenced by what is in front of us. Doesn’t it come from something magical and far away? No, it comes from here. It comes from now. I’m not going to tell you what this record is about because I have too much respect for that moment when you come to know it for yourself.”

    Our first look at Ones and Sixes comes with “No Comprende”, a smoldering number stamped with Low’s signature slowcore sound. Listen in below.
