Junior Boys Art for It's All True

"The striking image included with this announcement is a detail of the [new Junior Boys] album's cover, a deceptively abstract image taken by [Junior Boy] Jeremy Greenspan's sister of the UK Pavilion in Shanghai, China. Greenspan made an extended visit to Shanghai to write and begin recording It's All True. Traces of the influence of the trip can not only be seen but heard in tracks like the album opener "Itchy Fingers" whose exotic middle eight features local musicians Greenspan recorded during his sojourn. With much of the album composed and conceived, Greenspan returned to his native Hamilton, Ontario and was joined by [Junior Boy] Matthew Didemus to record in earnest at the band's recently constructed studio where Greenspan had recently mixed and recorded a few tracks on Caribou's most recent album, Swim." - Domino Records
