Corridor have announced their new album Mimi, will be released on April 26th via Sub Pop. The eight-track offering, which includes the highlights “Jump Cut,” “Mon Argent,” and “Mourir Demain,” was produced by Corridor and Joojoo Ashworth (Dummy, Automatic) at Studio Gamma in Montreal and mastered by Heba Kadry (Beach House, Deerhunter, Cass McCombs) Mastering in Brooklyn. All songs on Mimi were composed by Corridor, with lyrics written by guitarist and vocalist Jonathan Robert. Corridor kicks of their tour on March 9th in Mexico City, MX.

Corridor’s last release was Junior, the band’s prismatic Sub Pop debut, released in 2019. That album and its singles received praise from PASTE, who said, “The French-Canadian foursome may write and perform in French, but rock music this good is something we can all understand.” Meanwhile, Bandcamp noted the record’s “strong melodies and propulsive rock structures, which reference everything from shoegaze and post-punk to Krautrock and psych.”

Corridor’s Mimi—which, fun fact, is also named after Jonathan’s cat—is a record about “getting older” and “figuring out new parts of life”—but despite any claims of transitional growing pains from the band.

On “Mourir Demain,” Robert addresses his looming mortality: “I wrote it when my girlfriend and I were shopping for life insurance,” he laughs. “With our little daughter growing up, we also considered making our will. I said to myself, ‘Oh shit, from now on, I’m slowly starting to plan my death.” Watch the animated official video for “Mourir Demain,” directed by Paul Jacobs,
