Devendra Banhart is streaming his new album, 'Mala', online ahead of its official release on March 11.

Scroll down to listen to his eighth studio effort, via NPR.

Devendra Banhart has also announced plans for a short UK tour to support the release of the album, which was recorded in LA.

Banhart will play Brighton The Old Market on June 28, Manchester The Ritz on July 17 and London's Barbican on July 18. Tickets go on sale March 5.

Previously, Banhart revealed that the follow-up to 2009's 'What Will We Be' was made using borrowed equipment and on a vintage Tascam recorder bought in a pawn shop.

He explained: "A lot of early hip-hop had been made on [the Tascam]. And knowing my songs are not hip-hop whatsoever, we thought it would be interesting to see how these kinds of songs would sound on equipment that was used to record our favorite rap. Let's see how this technology would work for us."

The 'Mala' tracklisting is:

'Golden Girls'
'Daniel'
'Für Hildegard Von Bingen'
'Never Seen Such Good Things'
'Mi Negrita'
'Your Fine Petting Duck'
'The Ballad Of Keenan Milton'
'A Gain'
'Won't You Come Over?'
'Cristobal'
'Hatchet Wound'
'Mala'
'Won't You Come Home'
'Taurobolium'
