Old 97’s are set to return with their 12th studio album, entitled…er…Twelfth.

Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee between a tornado and a pandemic, Twelfth will be available everywhere on August 21, 2020 via ATO Records.

“Recording this album is one of the most intensely joyful experiences we’ve ever had as a band,” says lead singer Rhett Miller. There is a limited-edition silver vinyl version of the new outing, follow the link below to pre-order.

Working out of Sputnik Sound in Nashville, Miller and his long-time band mates – bassist Murry Hammond, guitarist Ken Bethea and drummer Philip Peeples – teamed up once again with Grammy-winning producer Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, Jack White).

“You have to take pride in the unlikeliness of it all” says Miller. “It’s mind boggling to think that we’ve been able to last this long, that we’ve been able to support ourselves and our families on our own terms for almost thirty years. Twelve is a lot of records.” Formed in Dallas, Texas, Old 97’s first emerged in the early 1990’s with a heady mix of punk, country and rock and roll.

Here’s the first taste – “Turn Off The TV”:
