Dirty Projectors are BACK Already to follow up last year’s self-titled album, And they’re heading out for the First Tour In Five Years (head to our Tours page for dates)!!! Lead single/video combo is “Break-Thru” which you can see in all its glory below (and it Truly IS just that!).
“Lamp Lit Prose” (out 7/13) arrives just over a year after 2017’s self-titled “Dirty Projectors,” with Dave Longstreth’s band returning 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. “Lamp Lit Prose” is a recommitment to the sounds and ideals of Dirty Projectors, embracing the band’s trademarks while pushing forward the sonic envelope.
Produced by Longstreth at his studio Ivo Shandor in LA, 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.
