Dirty Projectors Return With Warped New Song ‘Keep Your Name’

Dirty Projectors are back on the scene with a brand new tune.

The experimental US collective have returned with their first new piece of music since 2012, a hypnotic track dubbed Keep Your Name, which glitches and zig-zags all over the musical spectrum from electro to soul to hip hop, and a bunch of uncharted territory in between.

It’s a slight step away from the folksy, predominantly acoustic stylings of their last album, Swing Lo Magellan. And we suppose only time will tell whether it ushers in a fully blown sonic shift for the band.

The schizophrenic track also comes packing surreal visuals, directed by Longstreth & Elon Rutberg.

No word yet on whether a new Dirty Projectors album is on the way, but the last time the art rockers released new music, they also announced an Australian tour.

Just sayin.

Watch the clip for Keep Your Name, below.
