Jeff Tweedy of Wilco fame has assisted White Denim in making their fifth LP, the follow-on to 2011’s ‘D’. Having been hard at it in Tweedy’s Chicago studio HQ, The Loft, the band have a pair of tracks and a set of instrumentals on tape so far.

Quizzed by Relix Magazine, singer/guitarist James Petralli says: “We’ve always had a very DIY approach to recording. Early on it was because of necessity, but we always liked the idea of being a DIY band. So it was mind-blowing to go from that to recording in The Loft”.

He adds: “When we started, Jeff said to us, ‘I like your records but I love your live show. We are hoping to change that with this record. This album is going to be full of smaller moments larger in the mix. It is going to sound more like ‘us’ than anything we’ve ever recorded”.
