New Passion Pit – “Constant Conversations” (Listen)


Today Pitchfork premiered a track from Passion Pit’s upcoming release Gossamer. The R&B influenced jam is called “Constant Conversations”, listen now here

On July 24th, Columbia Records will release Gossamer, the highly anticipated follow-up to Passion Pit’s critically acclaimed 2009 debut album Manners. The album will be comprised of 12 new tracks that showcase Michael Angelakos’ ever-expanding lyrical talents and bring to life his trademark irresistible beats (see full track listing below). Gossamer was made throughout 2011 in Los Angeles and New York City, and again finds Angelakos working with Manners producer Chris Zane. The Boston Herald raves that with “a stunning new album…Passion Pit is about to outgrow the electro fad. The album is an artistic breakthrough — pure pop hasn’t had this much depth since Prince’s golden age — and it’s bound to be a commercial one as well.”

Passion Pit, already known for their energetic and rapturous live performances, will be on tour following the release by Columbia Records of the new album Gossamer on July 24th. Their summer will be filled with festival appearances (including Lollapalooza, Firefly, Outside Lands and the Jay-Z curated Made In America festival) and then the band will kick off a headlining North American tour through November (see dates below).

Passion Pit is the dynamic musical project of Michael Angelakos, the electronic wunderkind renowned for his complex and multi-layered pop songs. Angelakos debuted the notoriously charming EP Chunk Of Change in 2008 before releasing Passion Pit’s debut full length Manners in 2009.

  1. “Constant Conversations” is a great change of pace from “Take A Walk” and “I’ll Be Alright.” Really enjoy the tracks and lyrics that Passion Pit has been churning out. Gut feeling is that Gossamer is going to be one of the best records from this year.
