This Friday, March 27th, Dirty Projectors begin a new chapter with the release of Windows Open. The first collection of new Projectors material to feature the lineup of the 2018/19 Lamp Lit Prose tour, these four songs are laidback and yearning, poetic and a bit whimsical.
If you’ve seen Dirty Projectors live in the last two years, you no doubt saw Maia Friedman rocking the Silvertone and Stratocaster stage left – now she sings lead on all of Windows Open.
In addition, the band shared “Search For Life”, a classic Projectors ballad with a stunning string arrangement from Oliver Hill (Vagabon, Dust Rider). In the context of this month’s global crisis, it seems to carry a different and deeper resonance. Watch the lyric video below.
Windows Open will also feature recent single and music video “Overlord”. Another track, “On The Breeze,” feels generous and retrospective, like a peace offering to an impulsive trickster spirit. And closing the collection is “Guarding The Baby,” a song of flint-eyed catharsis. An atmosphere of lightness prevails over Windows Open, and flashes of humor and sweetness carry the day.
