Dirty Projectors' 'Lamp Lit Prose' Out July 13 On Domino

First Tour In Five Years Begins May 12, Includes Governor's Ball NYC June 3

Dirty Projectors announce the new album ‘Lamp Lit Prose,’ out July 13 on 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.  
Listen to/watch the video for first single “Break-Thru” here:
‘Lamp Lit Prose’ arrives just over a year after 2017’s self-titled ‘Dirty Projectors.’  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. 
Dirty Projectors recently announced their first tour in five years.  Longstreth will be joined on the road 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). All dates are below, and are on-sale now via dirtyprojectors.net
‘Lamp Lit Prose’ is available on CD, LP, and digitally here. The Deluxe LP is pressed on 180 gram limited edition red and blue starburst vinyl which contains a 16 page 6x11 libretto available exclusively on the Domino Mart. You can also pre-order the mystery color LP (red or blue!) from select indie retail shops in the US and UK.
