Published Sep 20, 2012Dirty Projectors main man Dave Longstreth previously told Exclaim! that the band had a whopping 60 tracks left over from the sessions for this year's Swing Lo Magellan. Soon, a few of those will see the light of day thanks to the new EP About to Die, which will arrive on November 6 through Domino Records.
In addition to the title track, which appears on Swing Lo Magellan, About to Die features three previously unheard songs. It will be available in 12-inch vinyl (cut at 45 RPM) and digital formats. You can already pre-order a copy from the label's website.
Scroll past the tracklist below to watch the video for the densely rhythmic "About to Die." The surreal clip features imagery for the band's Hi Custodian short film (which you can see in full right here).
Dirty Projectors have a number of international tour dates coming in the next few months but none in Canada. See their schedule here.
About to Die:
1. About to Die
