February 2014 will see the release of Spain’s brand new studio album, Sargent Place. Produced by Gus Seyffert (The Black Keys, Beck, Norah Jones), mixed by Darrell Thorp (Beck, Radiohead, Atoms For Peace, Paul McCartney), and recorded at Gus’ home studio (on a street in Echo Park, CA called Sargent Place) the album marks an artistic departure for the band and is arguably their finest work since 1995’s The Blue Moods Of Spain. Stand-out tracks include “You And I”, which features a bass-vocal duet between Josh and his father Charlie Haden (only the second time father and son have recorded together), Petra Haden’s lilting strings and lead guitarist Daniel Brummel’s haunting guitar melodies on “The Fighter”, the bluesy sense of musical reckoning of “From The Dust”, and the uptempo, Threepenny Operatic “Sunday Morning”. Sargent Place will see a U.S. release in Spring of 2014.

In November 2013 Glitterhouse released Spain - The Morning Becomes Eclectic Session, a live studio recording from the world famous KCRW radio station in Santa Monica, CA, which features guest vocal and string appearances from The Haden Triplets (Petra, Tanya, and Rachel). The band celebrated with an extensive European tour.

Spain was founded in Los Angeles by Josh Haden (son of bass-playing jazz great Charlie Haden). Their debut, The Blue Moods Of Spain was released in 1995. The band garnered a devoted cult following and they toured the U.S., Europe, and Australia. They performed on French TV, and opened for Cocteau Twins during their final U.S. tour. Spain’s song “Spiritual” was recorded by Johnny Cash on his Grammy-winning, Rick Rubin-produced Unchained, and by Charlie Haden and Pat Metheny on their Grammy-winning Beyond The Missouri Sky.

Spain’s 1999 sophomore CD, She Haunts My Dreams, found the band headlining large venues across Europe. A song from the album, “Every Time I Try” was picked by Academy Awards winning filmmaker Wim Wenders for the score of his movie “The End of Violence”, and the song “Our Love Is Gonna Live Forever” was featured prominently in an episode of the HBO series Six Feet Under. The third CD, "I Believe", was released in 2001, after which Haden took an extended break from the band.

In 2007 Josh reformed Spain with members of his live solo band: Randy Kirk on keyboards and guitars, and Matt Mayhall on drums. In 2010 lead guitarist Daniel Brummel joined the group, and 2012 saw the release of Spain’s first full-length album of new material in over ten years, "The Soul Of Spain" (Glitterhouse). In late 2012, Omnivore Recordings released all three of Spain’s previous records on limited edition vinyl in North America.
Spain was founded in Los Angeles by Josh Haden (son of bass-playing jazz great Charlie Haden). Their debut, The Blue Moods Of Spain, was released on Restless Records in 1995. Born from the same Los Angeles alternative rock scene in the early 1990s that gave rise to Beck, Weezer, and others - Spain’s music was a response to the then-current inundation of loud, aggressive guitar rock. With Blue Moods..., Spain became aligned with the “slowcore” subgenre of indie rock along with bands like Low and Red House Painters, but the band’s sound drew equally from West Coast jazz, rhythm and blues, country and '60s soul. The Blue Moods Of Spain garnered the band a devoted cult following and they toured the U.S., Europe, and Australia.

In the mid-late 1990s, several songs from Blue Moods... were featured in different films and TV shows. Film director Wim Wenders commissioned the band to write a song for his film End Of Violence. Spain’s song “Spiritual” was recorded by Johnny Cash on his Grammy-winning, Rick Rubin-produced Unchained, and by Charlie Haden and Pat Metheny on their Grammy-winning Beyond The Missouri Sky.

Spain’s 1999 sophomore CD, She Haunts My Dreams, found the band headlining large venues across Europe. A song from the album, “Our Love Is Gonna Live Forever,” was featured prominently in an episode of the HBO series Six Feet Under. The third CD, I Believe, was released in 2001, after which Haden took an extended break from the band. Restless Records released Spirituals: The Best Of Spain in 2003, signaling the apparent end of the band.

Josh Haden reformed Spain in 2007 with all-new members and began playing gigs again in their native L.A. Since then they’ve shared the stage with Tindersticks and the Clientele. May 2012 saw the European release of their first full-length album of new material in over ten years, The Soul Of Spain. The album was enthiusiastically receved by audinece and media alike.

„The Morning Becomes Eclectic Session“ a set of seven Spain classics, recorded live in the studio at KCRW radio station in Santa Monica, CA, Oct. On 4th in 2012 is more than just a gift for the fans. With the help of Josh’s three sisters Petra Haden, Rachel Haden and Tanya Haden (cello, violin and harmony vocals) it features some of the most beautiful music that has made it onto a record.

Spain will support the release of the album with another extensive tour throughout Europe in November-December 2013, hitting the UK, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, Portugal and - of course-Spain.
