Undermind, Phish’s first studio album since 2002’s Round Room, is due in stores June 15th on Elektra Records.
The album was recorded at the Barn in Vermont and mixed at Real World Studios in England by producer Tchad Blake (Tom Waits, Los Lobos, Soul Coughing, Peter Gabriel). Of the fourteen new tracks, many have never been performed live, including “A Song I Heard the Ocean Sing”, “The Connection” (the album’s first single), “Nothing”, “Access Me”, and “Tomorrow’s Song”. “Army of One”, a familiar solo number at Vida Blue and Phish shows, gets a full band treatment here, and “Secret Smile” features string arrangements by noted composer/arranger Maria Schneider.
The first pressing of the album will include a special bonus DVD of the 26 minute short film “Specimens of Beauty”, directed by longtime Phish photographer Danny Clinch, that chronicles the recording of the album in Vermont.
