Dirty Projectors (the project of Dave Longstreth) released a new self-titled album back in February 2017 via Domino. Now they have already announced another brand new album, Lamp Lit Prose, and shared a video for its first single, “Break-Thru.” The album features Robin Pecknold, Rostam, HAIM, Empress Of, and others. Lamp Lit Prose is due out July 13 via Domino. Below is the “Break-Thru” video, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art, as well as the band’s upcoming tour dates.

A press release describes the album as such: “Lamp Lit Prose arrives just over a year after 2017’s self-titled Dirty Projectors. Here Longstreth’s band returns 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.”

Their tour is the band’s first full-on tour in five years. Dirty Projectors also recently announced a new live line-up. Longstreth will be joined by previous members Nat Baldwin (bass) and Mike Johnson (drums), as well as three new band members: Felicia Douglass (percussion/vocals), Maia Friedman (guitar/vocals), and Kristin Slipp (keyboards, vocals).
