CSS' fourth album is titled Planta and will be out June 11 via SQE Music. That's the cover art above. The Brazilian band, currently a quartet following the departure of Adriano Cintra, made the record in Los Angeles with Dave Sitek. The album's first single, "Hangover," is a definite departure than the band's previous new wave-y sound and you can stream it below.
Further connections between Sitek and CSS happen this weekend (5/10) as the group play ATP in Camber Sands, UK which is curated by TV on the Radio. No formal announcement on a North American tour has been made but one seems to be forthcoming as CCS will play NYC on July 8 at Bowery Ballroom and July 9 at Brooklyn Bowl. Both shows are with IO Echo.
UPDATE (5/13): There's a full tour now. All current tour dates are listed below.

Cansei de Ser Sexy @ Webster Hall
CSS played a headlining show at Webster Hall on 10/22, joined by their tourmates MEN, and EMA (who played other shows while she was here), and Mykki Blanco. The tour concludes with a trio of dates in Texas this week (which means don't expect to see JD Samson in the crowd at Death By Audio tonight). Pictures from the CMJ show at Webster are in this post, and they continue below...
"A HALF-EMPTY venue and a middle-aged audience appeared to suggest that Primal Scream were not as relevant as they'd like to think they are.Primal Scream released their ninth studio album, Beautiful Future, on July 21, 2008. It was produced by "Björn Yttling (of Peter Bjorn and John) and Paul Epworth (who has produced Bloc Party)." The album features special guest appearances from Lovefoxxx (CSS), Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), Lykke Li (also a friend of Bjorn), Victoria Bergsman (The Concretes, "Young Folks"), Maria Andersson (Sahara Hotnights), Linda Thompson, and many others.
Opening the night with the dirge, electro distortion of Kill All Hippies, the band rapidly ploughed through the hits. The set-list featured songs from throughout their vast back catalogue, including Jailbird, Swastika Eyes, Rocks and a smattering of material from recent album Beautiful Future.
Frontman Bobby Gillespie looked as youthful as ever, but didn't really have any real conviction despite his attempts to come over all rock and roll by turning his back on the audience for one track.
Musically, the Scream sounded tight as a band with new member Barrie Cadogan standing out on lead guitar and gelling well with ex-Stone Roses bassist Mani." [a November 25th UK review]
