Last we spoke of Kero Kero Bonito, the London-based bilingual popsters had just signed with Polyvinyl Records and teased that further details on their new album, Time ‘n’ Place, would “be revealed soon.” Well, the details have been revealed, and the details are that Time ‘n’ Place is out now.

As with their TOTEP EP earlier this year, KKB have avoided the whole “announce an album several months in advance and then wait to release it on a pre-determined Friday” rigmarole, opting for the much more exciting route of surprise-releasing their music whenever they feel like it! Don’t know about you all, but our Monday sure just went from angry Garfield still in his pajamas… to happy Garfield jumping out of a cake.

But enough editorializing. Here’s the fun part: you can download or stream Time ‘n’ Place right now

after some more info!

A physical copy of Time ‘n’ Place, out January 11, 2019, is available to pre-order here. Songs on the album include the previously released “Make Believe,” the previously-featured-on-TOTEP “Only Acting,” and songs with titles like “Dump” and “Visiting Hours.” Read all the track titles alongside all the dates for KKB’s upcoming world tour below.
