Devendra Banhart’s What Will We Be Album Info

We don’t have an exact release date, but Devendra’s new label, Warner/Reprise, sent out a stream of What Will We Be a couple days ago, so we do have the track list. We also know Banhart’s sixth album runs for 50:31 and were told “the stuff sounds wicket good…” (Thanks for the tip, Lars.) The 14-track collection follows 2007’s Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon and was co-produced by DB and Band Of Bees’ Paul Butler. Banhart’s backed by Smokey mates Noah Georgeson, Megapuss Greg Rogove on drums, bassist Luckey Remington and guitarist Rodrigo Amarante on it. No word on whether or not Andy Cabic’s also inhaling any of Dev’s fumes. Take a look at the album art while you ponder the song titles.

01 “Can’t Help”
02 “Angelika”
03 “Baby”
04 “Goin’ Back To The Place”
05 “First Song For B”
06 “Last Song For B”
07 “Chin Chin & Muck Muck”
08 “16th & Valencia”
09 “Rats”
10 “Maria Leonza”
11 “Brindo”
12 “Meet Me At The Lookout”
13 “Wiliamdzi”
14 “Foolin'”

If you recall, we’ve heard live versions of “Chin Chin & Muck Muck” and “Baby.” Maria Leonza gets a song, but not Natalie?

What Will We Be is out this fall via Warner/Reprise.
