It’s been the better part of a year now since Dirty Projectors blew us away with Swing Lo Magellan, and the Brooklynites still have more material to share. Today the band posted “There’s a Fire,” a track that was previously only available to the lucky 250 folks that got a copy of the “Offspring Are Blank” 7” when the band played Carnegie Hall.
If that wasn’t enough, the band just announced plans to head out on tour once again, including a few shows alongside fellow Brooklyn indie rockers The National. The trek kicks off April 19 in Portsmouth, NH and wraps up with the band’s set at Bonnaroo mid-June. Listen to the new song and check out the tour schedule below and grab a copy of Swing Lo Magellan on Domino.
