It’s been four years, almost five, since Broken Bells’ last album After the Disco. The following year, the band released the single “It’s That Talk Again.” Since then, members James Mercer and Danger Mouse have worked individually on their own projects. In 2017, Mercer released the new Shins album Heartworms and accompanying The Worm’s Heart and earlier this year, Danger Mouse produced the new Parquet Courts album Wide Awake!.
Fans will be excited to know that the duo are in the works of returning to their Broken Bells project, as they’ve posted on each of their own Instagram accounts images of collaboration and studio work. They even posted an image via Twitter on their Broken Bells account.
