It's been 11 years since the B-52's released new music, dating back to its 2008 album Funplex. But the troupe, currently on a North American tour celebrating the 40th anniversary of its first album, plans to send some fresh stuff our way in the near future.
The group's Fred Schneider confirms to Billboard that the group is "scheduled to do two more songs" soon to accompany "a deluxe package of all our records" that's expected out during 2020. "They're releasing deluxe this, deluxe that every year," Schneider says, "so we're planning to record two more songs." Schneider says that Keith Strickland, who's retired from touring with the B-52's, will be writing the music for the songs, with Schneider, Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson adding lyrics.
