Dirty Projectors have announced plans to play London's The Barbican backed by a 20-piece orchestra.

Called Alarm Will Sound, the orchestra are described as a "contemporary ensemble", and have previously performed acoustic versions of the music of Aphex Twin.

Dirty Projectors will be performing their 2005 album 'The Getty Address' in its entirety at the show on June 25, as well as playing songs from last year's 'Bitte Orca'.

The gig has been performed twice before to sold out crowds at the Lincoln Center in New York and Disney Hall in Los Angeles.
