El Perro Del Mar reveals new album details
She'll also play shows in Los Angeles and New York
El Perro Del Mar has revealed details of her forthcoming album.
The Swedish songstress, whose real name is Sarah Assbring, will release 'Love Is Not Pop' in the US on October 20.
Assbring said that her third album was inspired by "doomed love" and her recent experiences in New York and Paris.
"For some reason all the songs were about love and in particular that of the doomed kind," she said in a statement.
"Unconsciously I think I knew what I was trying to tell myself. I'd spent some bad times in New York and some good times in Paris and both these cities have made a great imprint on this album and my current outlook on love. I've decided to call it 'Love Is Not Pop' -- the songs on the album are all pop songs and they are all about love. But naturally, it is not all as simple as that. As much as pop can be love and vice versa, I'd like to believe that love goes so much deeper than a pop song."
El Perro Del Mar has also announced that she will support fellow Swedes Peter, Bjorn and John on their North American tour in November, as well as play headlining shows in New York and Los Angeles.
The headlining tour dates are:
New York, NY Joe's Pub (November 9)
Los Angeles, CA Hotel Café (23)
The album tracklisting is:
'Gotta Get Smart'
'Change Of Heart'
'L Is For Love'
'Let Me In'
'It Is Something (To Have Wept)'
'A Better Love'
'L Is For Love' (Low Motion Disco's additional love remix)
'Change Of Heart' (J Rintamäki remix)
'Let Me In' (Nhessingtons remix)
