Picture puzzle reveals date

Shortly after, the publication was postponed indefinitely. That time is now over – the album will be out in a month.

The musicians now shared three pictures on Instagram of beauty contest participants posing in the background in front of the album cover. Their faces were replaced with pictures of the chicks when they were younger.

The three sashes hanging on the bodies of the models each reveal part of the release date.

“Gaslighter ‘” is the group’s first album since “Taking the Long Way” in 2006 and was co-produced by the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Jack Antonoff.

Emily said recently: “It was the first song we wrote with Jack Antonoff. Back then we thought we were going to write with a bunch of different people and get different producers, and then we wrote with him and we thought, ‘He has to produce it and that has to be the sound for this album.’ ”(Bang)
