Location has always been significant to the Books: Paul de Jong and Nick Zammuto began collaborating while living in New York City over ten years ago. The Way Out, the Books' fourth full-length album – their first since 2005’s Lost and Safe – has, from its start, also been shaped by location: the positioning of two books on a shelf, their titles cast in the same font, caught de Jong’s eye at a Salvation Army thrift store in Cincinnati while on tour; it was there the duo found an album title and a path to explore. The two have now settled with their respective new families north of New York City, and work from their home studios – de Jong from a converted bookstore in New Lebanon, NY, and Zammuto from a converted tractor garage in Readsboro, VT. They meet often in a small office located on the campus of Mass MOCA, the renowned contemporary arts museum in North Adams, MA.
