UPCOMING ALBUMS Dirty Projectors, Mitski, Tenacious D and more

There are a bunch of album announces that we are excited about this week, including Dirty Projectors, Mitski and a Tenacious D teaser among others.

Dirty Projectors have announced a new album, Lamp Lit Prose, out July 13, taking no breaks since their self-titled album released last year. That album made it onto our Top 20 albums of 2017, and if the list of guests set to feature on this album is anything to go by, Lamp Lit Prose might make this year’s Top 20 list as well. Haim, Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold, Syd, Rostam, Empress Of, Amber Mark and Dear Nora are all rumoured to be starring on the album. Check out our review of new single Break Thruwhich name drops Julian Casablancas.

Mitski has also announced a new album. Be The Cowboy is set to be released on August 17. It’s the follow up to her acclaimed 2016 record Puberty 2 and features her new single Geyser which you can listen to below. Speaking of the album, Mitski said, “For this new record, I experimented in narrative and fiction.”

While Tenacious D haven’t confirmed an album, they have certainly teased that they are working on one. Their first since 2012’s Rise of the Fenix, the band have said that they would “probably” release the album this year, but that’s all they’ve let slip to date.

If that’s too long to wait, there are three huge albums out this Friday, including Courtney Barnett‘s new record, The PresetsHI-VIZ and Parquet Courts‘ sixth LP.
