Welsh singer/songwriter/guitarist Cate Le Bon has teamed up with Bradford Cox of Deerhunter and Atlas Sound for a new EP, Myths 04. The duo has shared its first single, "Secretary." Myths 04 is due out November 1 via Mexican Summer and is latest installment in a serious of collaborative EPs connected to the Marfa Myths festival in Mafa, Texas. Myths 04 was recorded at 2019's festival earlier this year. Listen to "Secretary" below, followed by the EP's tracklist and cover art, as well as Le Bon's upcoming tour dates.

Le Bon had a furniture building residency during Marfa Myths 2019 and Mexican Summer has also released a new short documentary about this titled Have a Seat. Eli Welbourne directed the documentary, which also features Cox. Watch that below too.

Le Bon had this to say about the EP in a press release: "Marfa is an extraordinary town. It feels like nothing else exists when you're in it which is both comforting and unnerving. We committed ourselves to embracing the chaos, surrendering to all moments and moods that travelled through. It's a crude holiday scrapbook shared by all involved, an amalgamation of the changes in mood and light that shaped the days."

Le Bon released a new album, Reward, back in May via Mexican Summer. Deerhunter released a new album, Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared?, back in January via 4AD, and Le Bon was one of the producers on that album.

The Myths 04 recording sessions also featured Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint, Stephen Black of Sweet Baboo, Tim Presley of White Fence, and Samur Khouja.

Previous collaborations in the Myths series include Dev Hynes of Blood Orange and Connan Mockasin, Ariel Pink and Weyes Blood, and Dungen and Woods.

Le Bon also recently covered Wilco's "Company In My Back."
