The Lemon Twigs are officially back. Today the D'Addario brothers announced they are returning with the new album, Songs for the General Public, which will arrive on May 1 via 4AD. What's more, the group have already shared the first single "The One," as well as announced a North American tour, complete with Canadian dates.

UPDATE (3/26, 12:30 p.m. ET): The Lemon Twigs have now postponed the album release until August, as well as delayed all their upcoming tour dates, due to COVID-19. So far, no rescheduled dates have been revealed.

Songs for the General Public was written, recorded and produced by the D'Addarios at their Long Island home studio, Sonora Studios in Los Angeles and New York City's Electric Lady. The album marks the third Lemon Twigs album, and it follows 2018's Go to School.
