Produced by Greg Kurstin, the follow up to 1990's 'Smooth Noodle Maps' brings together the classic line-up of two pairs of brothers, Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh alongside Gerald and Bob Casale, joined by drummer Josh Freese, who has worked with Nine Inch Nails and Guns N' Roses.
For the album, the new wave outfit embarked on a collaborative process where fans gave their views on colour selection and tracklisting. "We decided to actively seek comment and criticism from outside people and use that as a tool, rather than shunning or ignoring it," Gerald Casale said in a statement. "Our experiences participating in secondary creativity -- things like corporate consensus building, focus groups -- make you appreciate the connection that an artist has to society."
As reported in Spinner, Santigold has also worked on 'Something for Everybody,' as has John King from production outfit the Dust Brothers and Swedish group Teddybears, after they remixed the Devo track 'Watch Us Work It.' The album is out June 14 in the UK and a day a later in the US.
