Gruff Rhys is releasing his new album Seeking New Gods through Rough Trade Records on 21st May. This will be Gruffs seventh solo album. Seeking New Gods was recorded following a US tour with his band and mixed in LA with superstar producer Mario C (Beastie Boys).

  1. album concept was originally driven to be the biography of a mountain, Mount Paektu (an East Asian active volcano). However, as Gruffs writing began to reflect on the inhuman timescale of a peaks existence and the intimate features that bring it to mythological life, both the songs and the mountain became more and more personal.

The album is about people and the civilisations, and the spaces people inhabit over periods of time. How people come and go but the geology sticks around and changes more slowly. I think its about memory and time, he suggests of Seeking New Gods meaning. Its still a biography of a mountain, but now its a Mount Paektu of the mind. You wont learn much about the real mountain from listening to this record but you will feel something, hopefully.- Gruff Rhys
