Arcade Fire and Bell Orchestre staple Sarah Neufeld has announced plans for her third solo record, Detritus, which will arrive on May 14 through Paper Bag Records.

Today, the violinist has shared the album's lead single, "Stories," alongside its own set of visuals by Jeremy Mimnagh. According to the release, the song is meant to make us face "the stories we've told ourselves that we can no longer believe."

Recordings from the album were birthed from a collaboration with dancer/choreographer Peggy Baker dating back to 2015. Along with her Arcade Fire bandmate Jeremy Gara on drums and synths, Bell Orchestre compatriot Pietro Amato on French horn and flautist Stuart Bogie, the seven-track record promises "luminous compositions" and a "gorgeous evolution" of Neufeld's sound.

Detritus marks Neufeld's first solo release since 2016's The Ridge. Meanwhile, Neufeld's work with Bell Orchestre is due to see release next month with the arrival of the group's House Music on March 19.
