Lightning Dust have announced a new album, Spectre, and shared its first single, album opener “Devoted To.” Spectre features Stephen Malkmus and Destroyer’s Dan Bejar and is due out October 4 via Western Vinyl. Listen to “Devoted To” below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art, as well as the band’s upcoming tour dates opening for Purple Mountains.

Lightning Dust was previously a side-project for the Vancouver, BC-based duo of Amber Webber and Josh Wells, back when they were in Black Mountain. But in 2017 they both left the mother ship to focus solely on Lightning Dust and this is their first album since then. In 2018 Webber went back to school and tried out a new career, before music came calling again.

“It made me realize that art and music are still my light,” Webber explains in a press release. “Spectre is my journey. It’s for all the women warriors that have been battling throughout life looking for a place to express themselves that feels inclusive and inspiring. It’s about finding yourself when no one is paying attention and inventing a new way of creating that feels honest and sincere. I truly feel that women, especially as we age, are underrepresented. That was truly the driving force to creating this album.”

Malkmus plays guitar on “A Pretty Picture” and Bejar contributes guest vocals “Competitive Depression.”
