Sub Pop Records is excited to announce that Duluth, Minnesota, trio LOW are releasing their 10th record, "The Invisible Way".

The record was produced by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, engineered by Tom Schick and recorded in Wilco's studio in Chicago during the autumn of 2012.

Coincidentally, the release marks LOW's 20th anniversary as a band. Rather than put together an own, inevitably-inadequate description of the album, Sub Pop will let LOW's Alan Sparhawk do the talking: "While driving though Chicago, on tour, we stopped finally to visit Wilco at their studio, The Loft.

They had invited us to come check it out several times over the years, but this would finally be the day.

It's a great place-a sea of nstruments in a relaxed, open working environment. It's cool, but what really converted us was hearing the new Mavis Staples tracks they were working on: big, simple, raw, and intimate.

Plans were made then and there. "Don't break my Grammy streak." We have worked with many of the great engineer/producers.

Jeff Tweedy has been on our side of the microphone for over 25 years, however with engineer (and fellow Grammy winner) Tom Schick, he has of late become a formidable and eclectic producer.

He spoke a language we understood, but then took us effortlessly into the mystery. We've made many records, and you know our M.O.: slow, quiet, sometimes melancholy, and, we hope, sometimes pretty...

How is this different from any other Low record? - Mimi sings lead on five of the eleven songs (she usually only does one or two, despite being a fan favorite).

- Piano, lots of piano... and an acoustic guitar. - Songs about intimacy, the drug war, the class war, plain old war war, archeology, and love.

Thank you for your time again and please enjoy what we made. I think it's beautiful."
