Black Lips have announced a new album, Sing in a World That’s Falling Apart, and shared a new song from it, “Gentleman.” Sing in a World That’s Falling Apart is due out January 24, 2020 via both Fire Records and Vice Records. It includes the previously shared single “Odelia.” Listen to both “Gentleman” and “Odelia” below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art, as well as their upcoming tour dates.

Sing in a World That’s Falling Apart is the follow-up to 2017’s Satan’s graffiti or God’s art?, which was produced by Sean Lennon and featured guest vocals by Lennon’s mother, Yoko Ono.

Sing in a World That’s Falling Apart was recorded and co-produced with Nic Jodoin at Laurel Canyon’s Valentine Recording Studios, which featured many legendary performers before closing in 1979 and recently reopened.

A press release describes the album like so: “Like The Byrds, who flirted with pastoral aesthetics before going all-out with the radical departure that was Sweetheart of The Rodeo, the Black Lips have been skirting the edges of country since ‘Sweet Kin’ and ‘Make It’ from their eponymous debut. But eschewing Graham Parson’s earnestness, Black Lips are careful not to hint at authenticity, wisely treading into their unfeigned rustic romance with the winking self-awareness of Bob Dylan’s ‘You Ain’t Goin Nowhere,’ Rolling Stones ‘Dear Doctor,’ or The Velvet Underground’s ‘Lonesome Cowboy Bill.’”
