Clark has detailed his tenth studio album. The electronic music vet will share Sus Dog, executive produced by Thom Yorke, on May 26 via Throttle.

Following his climate change-inspired 2021 album Playground in a LakeSus Dog is the first of Clark's albums to feature his own vocals, while Yorke sings and plays bass on the LP's "Medicine."

News of the two teaming up on Sus Dog arrives years after they traded remix work. In 2019, Clark remixed Yorke's ANIMA track "Not the News," ahead of the Radiohead frontman reworking Clark's "Isolation Theme" the following year.

You can hear Clark's vocal debut with "Town Crank" below. Yorke shared the following about their latest collaboration in a statement:

Chris [Clark] wrote me to say he'd started singing, looking for feedback/advice or whatever, cuz it was kind of new shark-infested waters for him. I've been into what he does for years, and I ended up being a kind of backseat driver as he pieced all the oddness of it together, which was fascinating.

I wasn't surprised to discover he came at singing and words through another door completely, which to me was the most interesting and exciting part. The first thing he sent me was him singing about being stuck between two floors and I was already sold. To me the way he approached it all wasn't the usual singer songwriter guff thank god; it mirrored the way he approached all his composition and recording, but this time it had a human face. His face.

Clark has also shared a run of June tour dates, complete with Canadian stops in Toronto and Montreal. You can find those dates below, with further details via the artist's official website.

Last year saw Clark remix Mitski, while Yorke spent the bulk of his 2022 recording and touring with the Smile behind their debut album, A Light for Attracting Attention.
