Dirty Projectors announce the new album ‘Lamp Lit Prose’, out July 13 on Domino and first single ‘Break-Thru’ – and you can listen to it now on the Fantasy Premier League playlist.
Produced by Dave Longstreth at his studio Ivo Shandor in Los Angeles, the new album features guest appearances from Syd, Empress Of, Amber Mark, Haim, Rostam, Robin Pecknold, and Dear Nora, as well as longtime DPs’ rhythm section Nat Baldwin and Mike Johnson.
‘Lamp Lit Prose’ arrives just over a year after 2017’s self-titled ‘Dirty Projectors‘. Here Longstreth’s band returns with a new album that is the yang to the yin of the 2017 effort. The songs signal a page turned for Longstreth: hope instead of heartbreak, a restorative balance. Guitars have returned to the Dirty Projectors’ world, intricate vocal harmony too.
Dirty Projectors recently announced their first tour in five years. Longstreth will be joined on the road by Baldwin (bass) and Johnson (drums) as well as three new band members: Felicia Douglass (percussion/vocals), Maia Friedman (guitar/vocals) and Kristin Slipp (keyboards, vocals).
