LA Priest (aka England’s Sam Eastgate) has announced a new album, Fase Luna, and shared its first single, “It’s You,” via a music video. Fase Luna is due out May 5 via Domino. Eoin Glaister directed the “It’s You” video. Watch it below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover artwork.

“It’s about a guy who falls in love with a sea mermaid or water spirit and has to choose between life on the land or the ocean,” says Eastgate about “It’s You” in a press release. “Some of it sounds like he’s on the edge of madness.”

Fase Luna was recorded in Mexico and the rainforests of Costa Rica.

Of the album as a whole, Eastgate says: “I want to give people a feeling that they’re free when they listen to it, it’s not bringing you back to reality, it’s escapism.”

It is the follow-up to 2020’s GENE. In 2016 Eastgate teamed up with New Zealand’s Connan Mockasin to form Soft Hair and release their self-titled debut. Eastgate was also formerly in Late of the Pier.
