After teasing the cover art on social media, experimental duo 100 gecs have officially announced their new album, 10000 gecs. It's the follow-up to their 2019 debut 1000 gecs, and its accompanying remix album, 1000 gecs & The Tree of Clues. A release date is still TBA.

Speaking to Pitchfork, Dylan Brady and Laura Les say that they missed multiple deadlines on making their new album, for which they signed to Atlantic Records in 2020, but that the latest set of demos came together in two weeks. Before that, they'd pared down some 4,000 demo tracks to 11 or 12 songs, then scrapped them. Song titles include lead single "Me Me Me" (which they've yet to share), "Hollywood Baby," "Real Killer," "Doritos and Fritos," "Frog on the Floor," and "Billie Knows Jamie."

"It’s 10 times as good as the last one," Les told Pitchfork. She also says that she sings on multiple songs without auto-tune to disguise her voice (Les is a trans woman). "As I’ve been exploring my voice more, I’m like, 'I can do this,'" she told Pitchfork. "And also I’m sick of worrying about it. If I don’t just fucking do it, then I’m just a scaredy cat. And I don’t want to be a scaredy cat."
