Rendezvous is the seventh album by American alternative rock band Luna.[10] It is the first Luna album to feature vocals by guitarist Sean Eden, on songs "Broken Chair" and "Still at Home."


"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.
