Celebration – “Tomorrow’s Here Today” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Earlier this month we heard from Mt. Royal, a Baltimore supergroup featuring Celebration singer Katrina Ford. Now Ford’s main gig is kicking back into action too. Celebration is releasing a new LP called Albumin this summer, their first for Bella Union following a three-album tenure on 4AD and 2011’s Electric Tarot on Friends Records. Ford’s typically rich, commanding vocals shepherd lead single “Tomorrow’s Here Today” through its evolution from a shimmering digital haze to a swaggering new wave romp. And the video, directed by Matt Riggieri of Digital Cave Media, segues from a space-age color spectrum into some wild dancers engaging in paint-covered performance art.

Albumin is out 8/19 on Bella Union. Pre-order it in vinyl, CD, or MP3 formats. Here’s how the band’s looking these days:
