Devendra Banhart Announces New Album and Tour, Shares Video for New Song "Twin"

'Flying Wig' was produced by Cate Le Bon

BY Kaelen BellPublished Jun 13, 2023

Devendra Banhart has announced Flying Wig, his first solo album in four years and the solo follow-up to 2019's Ma. It's arriving September 22 on Mexican Summer, and it was produced by art-rock virtuoso Cate Le Bon

Alongside the album announcement, Banhart has also shared Flying Wig's lead single  "Twin," which comes attached to a video directed by Matt Muir. The song finds Banhart moving somewhat into Le Bon's wheelhouse of organic, synth-led rock, with streaks of gothic '80s pop. 

"She's the only person I wanted to make this record with," said Banhart of Le Bon. "We definitely wanted a new sound, electronic yet organic and warm… we wanted to draw out and emphasize the emotional aspect of a synthesizer." Banhart's most recent album, 2021's Refuge, was a collaboration with Noah Georgeson.

After the album's September release, Banhart will be heading out on a world tour, with stops in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.
