Rendezvous is the seventh album by American alternative rock band Luna. It is notable as the first Luna album to feature vocals by guitarist Sean Eden, on songs "Broken Chair" and "Still at Home".

Background[edit]

"The Owl and the Pussycat' is a musical adaptation of the poem by Edward Lear. "Astronaut" is a reworked version of the song of the same name that appeared on Close Cover Before Striking. The album was recorded live to analog two-track, with minimal overdubbing done in post-production.
