Dirty Projectors To Release New LP ‘Lamp It Prose’, Unveil Lead Single + Video “Break-Thru”

DIRTY PROJECTORS

Dirty Projectors have announced the release of their new album, Lamp Lit Prose, out 13th July via Domino. Produced by Dave Longstreth at his studio Ivo Shandor in Los Angeles, the new album features guest appearances from Syd, Empress Of, Amber Mark, Haim, Rostam, Robin Pecknold, and Dear Nora, as well as longtime DPs’ rhythm section Nat Baldwin and Mike Johnson.

Lamp Lit Prose arrives just over a year after 2017’s self-titled album. 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.

The band have also unveiled the album’s lead single. Listen to/watch the video for “Break-Thru” below:
