Published Mar 22, 2016Earlier this year, we learned that Montreal singer-songwriter Laurel Sprengelmeyer would be delivering her "crazy beast" of a sophomore album as Little Scream — and now details on the upcoming record have emerged. Titled Cult Following, the new LP is set to arrive on May 6 on Dine Alone Records in Canada and on Merge in the rest of the world.
For the new material, Sprengelmeyer has enlisted the help of an impressive array of artists that includes Sufjan Stevens, Sharon Van Etten, Aaron and Bryce Dessner of the National, Owen Pallett, Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio, Mary Margaret O'Hara, and Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry.
The full tracklisting can be found below, while the album artwork is pictured above.
Additionally, the previously shared single "Love as a Weapon" has now been given the video treatment. Scroll past the list of song titles and Little Scream's upcoming tour dates to give it a watch.
Cult Following arrives as the follow-up to 2011's The Golden Record, which featured Parry and his Arcade Fire colleague Sarah Neufeld, Aaron Dessner, and Michael Feuerstack.
