Experimental group Dirty Projectors are releasing their self titled eighth album (and follow-up to 2012’s Swing Lo Magellan) on February 27.
The group has been teasing new music since the fall, but Up In Hudson heralds the official announcement of the new album in a bit of explicit fashion. The lyrics refer to singer and guitarist David Longstreth’s relationship and recent break up to former band member Amber Coffman: “Cause love will burn out, and love will just fade away/ Yeah love’s gonna rot, and love will just dissipate.” The contrast of stark and bitter words sung in falsetto against the euphoric cacophony of horns and percussion make for a stunning combo. Love. It.
