Calexico have announced their 10th studio album El Mirador, and have released the title-track as the first outing.
Burns said of their upcoming album, "El Mirador is dedicated to family, friends and community. The pandemic highlighted all the ways we need each other, and music happens to be my way of building bridges and encouraging inclusiveness and positivity. That comes along with sadness and melancholy, but music sparks change and movement."
Calexico wrote and recorded El Mirador with Sergio Mendoza (keys, accordion, percussion), who added, "I've been playing with Calexico for about 15 years, and I admire Joey and John's constant search for new sounds. After so many albums, I'm really proud we were able to achieve something so fresh together."
