Los Angeles band Allah-Las share the latest taste of their forthcoming album, Zuma 85.

Allah-Las have dropped the new single, “Right On Time", which is another tease of the band’s forthcoming new album, following on from "The Stuff" and the album's title track, "Zuma 85".

Recorded at Panoramic House studios in Stinson Beach with sketches, along with co-producer Jeremy Harris (White Fence, Devendra Banhart, Ty Segall) they shaped and crafted the new songs in real time over three sessions, which were then mixed in Los Angeles by frequent collaborator Jarvis Taveniere (Woods, Avalanches, Purple Mountains).

“We got in real late that first night of the first session,” Michaud says. “It was around midnight. We had a quick intro and Jeremy had a bottle of wine. We had a little and he said, ‘You wanna start recording?’"

When the group reassembled the following morning to listen back, “Right On Time,” mostly done. It was unlike anything the band had ever recorded but felt entirely natural. “Everything just worked,” Michaud says. “That studio just pulls it out of you.”

The self-produced video for the single pays homage to the classic plug-and-play video shoots of the early MTV era, shot in a few hours on a white backdrop with minimal planning and a few rolls of 8mm film.

Zuma 85 is being released via the band’s own label, Calico Discos, in partnership with Innovative Leisure, which released earlier albums including Allah-Las (2012) and Worship The Sun (2014). The album follows their 2019 release, LAHS.

"Right On Time" is out now. Allah-Las release their fifth studio album, Zuma 85, on 13 October via Calico Discos, in partnership with Innovative Leisure. Pre-orders are available now.
