Dirty Projectors Reveal New Song, “That’s a Lifestyle” + Video

DIRTY PROJECTORS

Dirty Projectors have revealed “That’s A Lifestyle,” the second song released from the forthcoming album Lamp Lit Prose, out July 13th on Domino.

“That’s A Lifestyle” is a protest song, wrapping fiery, passionate lyrics in a beautiful melody, and the guitar arrangement finds acoustic 12-strings exploding into electric bursts and squelches. The video evokes Greco-Roman figures in minimalist hand drawn animations and was created by Kitty Faingold.

Watch the video and listen to the song below:

Dirty Projectors are currently touring for the first time in five years and just played Governor’s Ball and two nights at El Rey in Los Angeles. On stage, Dave Longstreth is joined by Baldwin (bass) and Johnson (drums) as well as three new band members: Felicia Douglass (percussion/vocals), Maia Friedman (guitar/vocals) and Kristin Slipp (keyboards, vocals).
