Apparently I was right when I took “2CD” from the press release to mean that Yellow & Green (which should have been evidenced from the title itself) would be a double album. Turns out, it totally is! Baroness has released the tracklist and album art for their highly anticipated follow up to 2009’s critically acclaimed Blue Record. Above, you can see the album art in all of its glory. It should come as no surprise to anyone that it includes naked ladies interacting with flora, fauna, and bones — Jon Baizley’s style is pretty consistent — but even still, it’s some gorgeous art, which will likely look fantastic on a vinyl gatefold.

Here’s the tracklist:

Yellow:

1 Yellow Theme
2 Take My Bones Away
3 March to the Sea
4 Little Things
5 Twinkler
6 Cocainium
7 Back Where I Belong
8 Sea Lungs
9 Eula

Green:

1 Green Theme
2 Board Up the House
3 Mtns. (The Crown & Anchor)
4 Foolsong
5 Collapse
6 Psalms Alive
7 Stretchmarker
8 The Line Between
9 If I Forget Thee, Lowcountry

Yellow & Green is gonna be nuts, but it might not even be metal! Regular Metalsucks/Invisible Oranges contributor, PR agent, and all around queen of ballsy metaldom Grim Kim posted on Twitter recently that what she heard of the album was “not metal at all.” Perhaps one disc will feature more relaxed acoustic/rock jams and the other will be the sludgy party time we’ve known in the past? We’ll have more information as soon as we hear of it. Expect some new music fairly soon! Yellow & Green is due out July 17th on Relapse Records.
