Dirty Projectors (the project of Dave Longstreth) released a new self-titled album last year via Domino and are already returning with a new one, Lamp Lit Prose, which is due out July 13 also via Domino. Previously they shared a video for its first single, "Break-Thru" (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Now they have shared another song from the album, "That's a Lifestyle," via a minimalist animated video directed by Kitty Faingold. Watch it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

Lamp Lit Prose features Robin Pecknold, Rostam, HAIM, Empress Of, and others. A previous press release described the album as such: "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." 

Their tour is the band's first full-on tour in five years. Dirty Projectors also recently announced a new live line-up. Longstreth will be joined by previous members Nat Baldwin (bass) and Mike Johnson (drums), as well as three new band members: Felicia Douglass (percussion/vocals), Maia Friedman (guitar/vocals), and Kristin Slipp (keyboards, vocals).
