Dirty Projectors About to Die New Music: Dirty Projectors   While Youre Here

As previously reported, Dirty Projectors will follow up July’s Swing Lo Magellan with the About to Die EP on November 6th via Domino Records. On “While You’re Here”, David Longstreth stretches his larynx over a swelling cacophony of strings that’s urgent yet elegant. Listen to it below.

Update: According to a tweet from Longstreth, the song is a tribute to TV on the Radio bassist Gerard Smith, who died last year from lung cancer.

The title track and two other news songs round out the EP.
