Dirty Projectors Tease New Music With Tour Announcement

Earlier this week, Dave Longstreth announced the first full-fledged Dirty Projectors tour since releasing that self-titled album last year. His touring bandmates will include Nat Baldwin, Felicia Douglass, Maia Friedman, Mike Johnson, and Kristin Slipp, and it’ll kick off with a performance at FORM Arcosanti in May. Tickets for that are on sale now. Included in the pair of videos that accompany the tour announcement is a teaser of some new music that wasn’t included on the last album, which suggests something might be in the pipeline. Adding to that possibility is a phrase that recurs in each video: “Lamplit Prose.” Check it out below.
