 Our favorite freak folkie, Devendra Banhart, has finished recording his sixth album. The big question is what label will release it: Banhart has left his previous home of XL Recordings.

Banhart produced the still-untitled album with Paul Butler from U.K. act Band of Bees at a house in Bolinas, Calif. It is slated for release this fall.

This is Banhart’s first studio album since 2007’s “Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon.”  In other Banhart news, he is also part of a new collective that will recreate classic albums with Beck that will then be available via Beck’s website. The Gallagher Bros. also recruited Banhart to remix “(Get Off Your) High Horse Lady” for Oasis, according to NME.
