Winter'll get warmer thanks to a dose of music from Rodrigo y Gabriela, who will issue their fourth studio album Area 52 Jan. 24. The record features nine tracks from Rodrigo Y Gabriela's discography re-arranged and re-configured for a 13-piece Cuban orchestra known as C.U.B.A. How experimental and creative, and, well, awesome!
"The album is called Area 52 because we felt like Mulder and Scully approaching this — it was just a crazy idea, to see if a big Cuban band could play our music, a step in the dark," Rodrigo explained in a statement, referencing The X Files. "We knew it was out there, everyone has heard of Area 51, but we wanted to take it a little further. We saw it as a trip into the unknown, an experiment." The truth is out there!
Expect the pair to tour next year.
