Mexican alternative icons Cafe Tacvba have announced the May 5 release of their new studio album ‘Jei Beibi.’ The album is the group’s first studio release in 5 years.
New single “Que No” was recorded at Ocean Studios (Burbank, CA), written by bassist Quique Rangel and produced by longtime collaborator Gustavo Santaolalla. “’Que No’ is a song about the beginning and the end of love and an uncertain redemption,” Rangel says. “With Joey Waronker’s drums and Meme’s hammond organ, we arrived at sounds we had never explored before, they evoke some rock bands from the 1970s.”
The new single follows the psychedelic track “Disolviéndonos” and the New Years Day single “Futuro.” The new album will be Café Tacvba’s first release since “El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco” in 2012, which was nominated for a GRAMMY in the “Best Latin Rock, Urban, Alternative Album” category and won a Latin GRAMMY for “Best Music Video – Longform.”
