Cibo Matto just announced that Hotel Valentine, the band’s first record since 1999’s Stereo Type A, will be released, very appropriately, on February 14 via Chimera Music. The album was self-produced over a two-year span by the band’s founders, Miho Hatori and Yuka C. Honda, and will feature guest appearances from a number of musicians, including Nels Cline, Glenn Kotche, and Mauro Refosco. MFN featuring Reggie Watts, is Cibo Matto’s first offering from the album, and it arrived along with an ultra colorful avant-psychedelic video. The band also announced a North American tour that will begin in February. Check out the tour dates and watch the video below.
