Deradoorian (aka former Dirty Projectors bassist/vocalist Angel Deradoorian) is releasing a new mini album, Eternal Recurrence, on October 6 via Anticon. Previously she shared its first single, “Mountainside.” Now here is another song from the album, “Nia in the Dark.” Listen below.

Deradoorian wrote the vocal harmonies for a friend, the Los Angeles-based musician Nia Andrews. As a press release points out: “Honoring and extending gratitude towards friends, and their individual strengths, became crucial to constructing Eternal Recurrence.”

Deradoorian had this to say in a press release: “We had these conversations where she’s never really felt seen in certain ways, and I know a lot of people don’t feel seen. But they do so much and they inspire so many people around them. So it’s kind of talking about like, ‘You may not be seen by all, but these are all the things I see in you, and I see what you’re doing and how you affect everyone and you’re such an important thread in people’s lives.’”

Eternal Recurrence is the follow up to her debut solo album, 2015’s The Expanding Flower Planet. A press release says the album is inspired by the music of Alice Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, and Don Cherry, and describes it as such: “The stark album, which predominantly features Deradoorian’s riveting vocals co-mingling with a handful of instruments, is a testament to an artist who found new depths both within herself and in her process through allowing herself to be driven entirely by instinct.”
