Car Seat Headrest album delayed due to uncleared sample

Car Seat Headrest’s new album ‘Teens of Denial’ has been delayed due to an uncleared sample of The Cars’ song ‘Just What I Needed’ – it’s likely the vinyl version now won’t be available until July.

“I’m not going to get into the nitty-gritty of email chains and invested parties; suffice it to say that Matador (and I) were neither pulling a Banksy nor operating in ignorance of the law, but that we truly believed we had the issue resolved months ago, until last week,” Will Toledo explains on Facebook.

All physical copies of the release have been recalled, while a digital version featuring an alternate cut of the offending track will still be released on 20th May.

You can read Upset’s verdict on the (original) record in our May issue, out now. It also features an interview with Will.
