Listen: Dirty Projectors’ “Gun Has No Trigger”


Seemingly out of nowhere, Dirty Projectors took their Twitter account to share a brand-new single. It’s called “Gun Has No Trigger,” which they preceded with the following message: “Hey y’all We at it again A desert eagle and a black MAC-10 But wait, hold up: ‘The Gun Has No Trigger.'” As you might have guessed, there was also a link attached for the collective world to listen.

It’s an interesting cut, to say the least, and it never really swells into a sweeping chorus like you might expect. Instead, it’s more or less driven by a low-lying shuffling beat and frontman David Longstreth’s vocals. And it’s pretty goddamn dark lyrically. Yeah we’re going to need a little time to digest this.
