With one of the year’s most critically acclaimed albums behind them, Dirty Projectors are getting reflective. Today the Brooklyn outfit debuts “While You’re Here,” its tribute to the late Gerard Smith of TV on the Radio. The new track features some particularly powerful and emotional vocals from frontman David Longstreth over a melancholy string section.
“While You’re Here” is set to appear on Dirty Projectors’ upcoming About to Die EP. Listen to that track below, look out for that record on November 6 and grab the LP, Swing Lo Magellan, now, both via Domino Records.
