New Jersey’s Real Estate release their new album, Days, on Monday October 17th. Recorded in Upstate New York through the late winter/spring of 2011 with Kevin McMahon (The Walkmen, Titus Andronicus), Days is a gorgeous suite of timelessly melodic, achingly melancholy pop songs and a delightfully confident follow-up to 2009’s exceptionally well-received eponymous debut. Comprised of nine new recordings and a revisit of last year’s enduringly wonderful "Out of Tune", Days is the next step in the career of a uniquely close songwriting collective that feel more important with their every release.

The album will be available on CD (WIGCD275), vinyl (WIGLP275) and via digital download (WIG275D).

Tracklisting is as follows:
Green Aisles
It's Real
Kinder Blumen
Out Of Tune
Wonder Years
Three Blocks
Younger Than Yesterday
All The Same

A single, the buoyantly beautiful "It’s Real", will precede the album on October 10th. The single will be released on 7” and come backed with a new recording of "Blue Lebaron".

Before that, however, we’re offering "It’s Real" for free for the bargain price of an email address. Click "MP3" in the player below to receive an instantaneous free download.

In more news, the band, consisting of Martin Courtney, Matt Mondanile and Alex Bleeker, are currently on tour in the US breaking in the new material as well as two new live members, drummer Jackson Pollis and keyboardist/guitarist Jonah Maurer. The band will be returning to the UK in the autumn.
