In addition to A Sentimental Education (an album of covers), they also will release an EP of 6 new Luna instrumentals entitled A Place Of Greater Safety also on September 22 (Double Feature Records). The LP and EP mark the band’s first output since Luna’s last studio album Rendezvous, released 13 years ago. Both the LP and EP were co-produced by Jason Quever (Papercuts) and recorded at Palmetto Recording in downtown Los Angeles. On A Sentimental Education, Luna tackle songs by the Cure, Mink DeVille, Fleetwood Mac, Mercury Rev and others. The Luna lineup remains the same as it was when they last recorded: Dean Wareham, Sean Eden, Lee Wall, Britta Phillips.
