The Rapture returns to the
record bins on Sept. 26 with third album In
The Grace of Your Love
. It will arrive courtesy DFA, the label whose first
single was the band’s landmark “House of Jealous Lovers” 12″. The
labels’ co-founders James Murphy and Tim Goldsworthy produced their debut album Echoes as
well.
DFA recently debuted the new album track “How Deep Is Your
Love?” via their White Out Session series.
The song was available as a limited edition 12″ and is currently sold-out but
will be reissued in July with a remix from The Emperor Machine.

According to the band, “The
writing and recording process for In The Grace of Your Love connected
them back to why they started playing music in the first place. Drummer Vito
Roccoforte explains that they ‘focused on the process more than the results. We
approached the album in a fearless manner, with nothing to lose.’ By
rediscovering the love for the recording process via each other and the new
dynamic of producer Philippe Zdar (Phoenix, Beastie Boys, Chromeo) and his
studio in Paris, the band worked in a far more focused period of time, unlike
on albums past.”
