Klang is the third and final studio album by the Englishindie rock band The Rakes, released on March 23, 2009. The album was preceded by the first single "1989" on March 16. The Rakes recorded the album with Chris Zane in Berlin, Germany, a decision that lead singer Alan Donohoe explained is because "The London music scene is so dull--it's like wading through a swamp of shit. We just wanted to be somewhere more inspiring." Hence the name of the album which is the German word for 'sound'.
