Dirty Projectors (the project of Dave Longstreth) released a new self-titled album last year via Domino and are already returning with a new one, Lamp Lit Prose, which is due out July 13 also via Domino. Previously they shared a video for its first single, “Break-Thru” (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Now they have shared another song from the album, “That’s a Lifestyle,” via a minimalist animated video directed by Kitty Faingold. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Lamp Lit Prose features Robin Pecknold, Rostam, HAIM, Empress Of, and others. A previous press release described 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).

You possibly can play it anytime you want.? Daddy answered.
?Because speaking about how nice God is makes him happy and
its worship. Play it earlier than you fall asleep
tonight and whenever you get up in the morning and God shall be close to you all day
