Devendra Banhart has completed work on his sixth full length album, the follow up to 2007’s Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon.  The still-untitled album was co-produced by Banhart and Paul Butler (of UK outfit Band Of Bees). Devendra and company moved into a house in Bolinas, CA, and set up a recording facility with the help of Tape Op Magazine’s John Baccigaluppi.

The basic recording line-up was Devendra on vocals and guitar; Noah Georgeson on guitar and backing vocals, Greg Rogove on drums and backing vocals; Luckey Remington on bass and vocals and Rodrigo Amarante on guitar and backing vocals. All the musicians involved played a part in arranging the songs recorded.

The album will be released Fall of 2009 and will be on a new label, with Banhart having departed from the XL Recordings.
