Chicago trio Dehd have announced a new album, Poetry, and shared its first single, “Mood Ring,” via a music video. They have also announced some tour dates. Poetry will be out on May 10 via Fat Possum. View the “Mood Ring” video below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover artwork, as well as the tour dates below.

Poetry is the follow-up to 2022’s Blue Skies (also on Fat Possum) and 2020’s Flower of Devotion (which was released by Fire Talk).

Dehd is Emily Kempf, Jason Balla, and Eric McGrady. After they finished touring Blue Skies, the band embarked on some writing sessions in remote locations. “Eating, sleeping, breathing, living—our only purpose was to write,” says Kempf in a press release.

Ziyad Asrar of Whitney co-produced the album alongside Balla, recording at Palisade Studios in Chicago. Charles Bukowski’s poem “The Laughing Heart” inspired the album.
