While some artists around the industry have opted to delay their own feeble album projects, rockers White Denim have charged forward in this time of uncertainty by releasing their own new studio effort, World As a Waiting Room, which arrives on major streaming platforms today (May 8th). The rock band first announced their plans to write, record, mix, master, and release an entirely new studio album within 30 days while in quarantine back in March, and the Austin, TX-based group didn’t disappoint.

World As a Waiting Room includes nine brand-new original recordings, including the previously released singles, “I Don’t Understand Rock and Roll” and “Work”. The creative process reportedly saw the band utilize WhatsApp group chat to communicate, while recording their respective parts separately at their Radio Milk Recording Studio in East Austin and working remotely at each of their home studios.
