Listen: Dirty Projectors Go Orchestral On New “While You’re Here”

    On Nov. 6, Dirty Projectors will follow up this summer’s Swing Lo Magellan with About To Die, a four-song EP out via Domino Records that features three new songs. They’ve dropped the first taste in the form of “While You’re Here,” a somber, string-laden ballad that boasts a particularly impressive vocal from singer David Longstreth. The song is made even more emotional by the fact that, according to Longstreth, it’s an ode to TV On The Radio’s bassist Gerard Smith, who died last year from lung cancer. Take a listen to the song below, and check out the track list for the EP as well.

    About To Die EP track list:
