Devendra Banhart is set to release his new album, 'Mala', in the Spring of 2013.

Co-produced by Banhart and his guitarist Noah Georgeson, the album comes ahead of festival dates and a full tour, details of which will be released soon.

'Mala' follows the folk rock artist's 2009 album 'What Will We Be' - which was nominated for a Grammy for Banhart's self-designed artwork – and will be his first release on his new label Nonesuch Records. 'Mala' is Banhart's eighth studio album. He released his debut LP, 'The Charles C Leary', in 2002.

Earlier this year, Banhart, alongside LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy and Beck, provided the soundtrack to a new artwork by Doug Aitken in Washington, DC.

The piece, called Song 1, saw the Los Angeles-based multimedia artist projecting 360 degree films onto the exterior of the Hirshhorn Museum.

The soundtrack was made up of the above acts and more singing their own versions of the 1930s jazz standard, 'I Only Have Eyes For You'.
