White Denim have revealed details of their forthcoming eighth album. Side Effects will be released March 29th via City Slang and comes less than a year since their last album, Performance.

The band have shared two new tracks, Shanalala and NY Money, which can both be streamed below.

James Petralli had this to say about Shanalala: "Side Effects is built around this tune in some ways, I remained excited about ‘Shanalala’ so I wrote a few tunes that I thought would work with the mood and atmosphere of the track. Steve got a chuckle out of most of them and wrote great parts, then we staffed the sessions for the songs with musicians that we are inspired by. Then we dubbed and arranged the absolute shit out of them with our partner Jim Vollentine."

And on NY Money he explained: "The lyrics came first. The first line was originally ‘The drugs quit smoking, I don’t find it inspiring.’ which I had written in a notebook after a night of drinking with The War on Drugs guys. They had all recently ‘quit’ cigarettes which made me suspect that they were really hanging around me so they could pinch cigs every couple of minutes. I went through two packs in three hours with them. The Neu influenced production and meandering feel of the back part of the tune is a winking homage to what they’ve been up to for the past few years."
