BARONESS: Entire 'Purple' Album Available For Streaming

BARONESS's fourth album, "Purple", is available for streaming in its entirety below. The CD will be released on December 18 through Abraxan Hymns).

The "Purple" cover artwork was created by BARONESS frontman John Baizley. Baizley has done the artwork for all of BARONESS's releases as well as fine art and album art for bands including SKELETONWITCH, BLACK TUSK, KVELERTAK and KYLESA.

"Purple" was helmed by producer Dave Fridmann (FLAMING LIPS, SLEATER-KINNEY, MGMT), who recorded the album at his Tarbox Road Studios in Cassadaga, New York. Baizley told Rolling Stone about working with Fridmann: "Yeah, I loved 'The Soft Bulletin' [by the FLAMING LIPS] — that was a record that really proved to me the impact that a producer could have on a band. Same thing with the 'Yoshimi' record that came after that; they were just unbelievably rich sonic masterpieces. I loved the way he produced the first MGMT record, too. But there are also bands he's worked with — and I'm not going to name names — that frankly, I don't like; but I love the records he did with them, because there's just an incredibly rich and creative sonic thing happening. If you can make a band that I'm not a fan of sound good, and keep me interested in listening to them, then you are doing something terrific from a production standpoint."

Pre-order packages for "Purple" — which feature an instant download of "Chlorine & Wine" as well as a limited-edition colored vinyl version of the new album, two picture discs, t-shirts and other unique items — are available now. Digital pre-orders, which also include an instant download of "Chlorine & Wine", are available via iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.

BARONESS is John Baizley (guitar, vocals), Pete Adams (guitar, vocals), Nick Jost (bass, keyboards) and Sebastian Thomson (drums).
