The Breeders - ‘Joanne’ Live Video
The Breeders : ‘Joanne’ Live Video
7th February 2018

When the Breeders reunited to release their first new music in a decade, the 2017 single ‘Wait in the Car’, they formed a series of limited 7” releases.  On one, Kim Deal’s dreamy reimagining of Mike Nesmith’s ‘Joanne’ fills the B-side.  Today for the first time, the Breeders release an intimate video of Deal’s recording of that exact take in Steve Albini’s Chicago, IL studio with an appearance from Albini.  Deal and Albini will appear in conversation at SXSW on 14th March.  The Breeders’ long-awaited fifth album All Nerve is out on 2nd March.

All Nerve is available to pre-order from 4AD here.
You can pre-order the album from The Breeders' Store here.
You can pre-order All Nerve on all platforms here, including Spotify pre-save, here.
You can listen to Kim Deal’s ‘Introduction to The Breeders’ on Spotify Playlist

Watch ‘Joanne’ (filmed at Electrical Audio, Chicago).

In lieu of a traditional bio, author Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Coraline) penned a biographical essay on the Breeders. Read an excerpt below and the full version here.

People change over the years, and the you that is you never changes. Yesterday you were a kid, and tomorrow you’ll be old, and you think you’re the same person you were, despite all evidence to the contrary.

Music slices you in time. 

To coincide with All Nerve and following a successful club tour late last year, the Breeders will tour North America and Europe throughout the Spring and Summer. Find tour dates below including newly added shows in Belfast (as part of the BBC Weekender), Los Angeles and New York City.
