Beth Orton will be releasing her new album Kidsticks on May 27th. Today she has shared one of the songs, “1973,” via Stereogum. Kidsticks is Orton’s first release in four years. The song combines her voice with a synth riff and features features George Lewis Jr. on guitars and Guillermo E. Brown on drums. It’s the first album she wrote on synthesizers instead of acoustic guitar. She worked with co-producer Andrew Hung in making loops in a garage in LA, making it her first time working on the production of a record.

The album was mixed by David Wrench (best known for hits from Hot Chip and Caribou) and features guest musicians such as Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor, Twin Shadow’s George Lewis Jr and Dustin O’Halloran from Winged Victory for the Sullen.
