The Soft Pink Truth, aka Matmos' Drew Daniel, has announced a new album, Is It Going To Get Any Deeper Than This?, which is out October 21 via Thrill Jockey. “Years ago a friend was DJing in a club and a woman came into the DJ booth and asked ‘is it going to get any deeper than this?’ and the phrase became a kind of mantra for us," says Daniel of the album's title and themes. "What did she really want? This album was created as an attempt to imagine possible musical responses to her question.”

The album features many musician friends, including Daniel's partner in life and Matmos, MC Schmidt, as well as Mark Lightcap (Acetone), Jason Willett (Half Japanese), Nate Wooley, Brooks Kossover (Drugdealer), John Berndt and Andrew Bernstein (Horse Lords), and more. The first single, a luxurious slice of disco titled "Wanna Know," features backup vocals from Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak / Flock of Dimes). You can listen to that below.

Meanwhile, Matmos are on tour now and hit NYC on August 11 at Le Poisson Rouge. All dates are listed below.
