Hello everyone. NU SHOOZ here. We’re rolling out our first album since 1987. It’s called ‘Bagtown.’

The album was a moment of spontaneous combustion; the music formed out of the same swirling cosmic dust that created the Universe, and everything in it. Call it the ‘Shooz version of the ’Big Bang,’ a new solar system of sound.

Actually, ‘Bagtown’ began as a cardboard city filled with ‘bag people.’ The city grew and grew. It threatened to take over the studio. But…believe it or not…music began to emanate from that corrugated city…and the music was fun.

But without you ‘BagTown’ is just an empty little burg. Your participation and support here is more than just a way for us to make more music, it’s about us making a connection with you in a way we’ve never been able to before.

So come along with us to a funky soulful place called Bagtown. Pre-order now for access to exclusive updates and once in a lifetime experiences.

Fun is the orbit we’re on, and fun is what’s in the bag!
