Experimental composer and former Velvet Underground member John Cale will release his first new full-length LP since 2005, Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood, on October 2nd via Domino Records imprint Double Six. The 12-track follow up to 2011’s Extra Playful EP was recorded by Cale in his Los Angeles studio and is described as a “blend of chaos and beauty.” As introduction to the world of Nookie Wood, Cale has released the album’s lead single, the Danger Mouse-produced “I Wanna Talk 2 U”. Crafted to reflect “an old-school Detroit vibe”, the shimmer of the soul-inspired guitar and Cale’s murky croon combine to form a deviant dance number sure to be blaring from Nookie Wood’s seediest discos.

In support of the record, Cale has announced a slew of forthcoming European shows. Check out the full tour schedule following the album tracklist.
