Megafaun Unveils New Single, New Album

American folk group Megafaun is set to release their new self-titled album due out on September 20 on Hometapes.

The band recently unveiled the first single, These Words is one of the most ambitious recordings Megafaun has ever undertaken, indicative of the bold course charted on their forthcoming album. Process, songcraft, and emotion collided when Megafaun's Joe Westerlund looped together field recordings from his travels in Bali and rural North Carolina: a round-robin of gamelan, ambient sounds, frogs, and cicadas underpin a hauntingly indelible piano melody and a hypnotic beat.

Megafaun's new album was recorded at April Base in Fall Creek, WI, the studio of former bandmate Justin Vernon of Bon Iver.
