Dirty Projectors’ recently announced that they’ve got a sixth album on the way! Swing Lo Magellan will be released 9 July in the UK and Europe and July 10th in North America. In Swing Lo Magellan, David Longstreth shows that he doesn’t do the same thing twice. Longstreth played producer and did the mixing for this album. He also wrote seventy new songs and beats for it. The songs of Swing Lo Magellan were put together after 12 months of constant writing and recording in (what they call), a weird house in Delaware County, NY. Dirty Projectors is made up of David Longstreth (vocals, guitar), Amber Coffman (vocals, guitar), Angel Deradoorian (vocals, keyboard, guitar, bass), Brian McOmber (drums), Nat Baldwin (bass) and Haley Dekle (vocals). As you read, most of the members contribute to the vocals so you can imagine the intensity of their albums.
“Swing Lo Magellan is an album from the heart of one of the most fearlessly thoughtful bands in the last ten years. The album has both intimacy of a love letter and widescreen grandeur of a blockbuster, and if that sounds like a paradox – it’s because it was until now.” says Domino about the album.
