Dirty Projectors appear to be teasing new music.
The Brooklyn band shared a cryptic 20-second teaser clip on social media last night (September 19) without explanation. They also changed their Facebook and Twitter avatars to a plain back screen.

The experimental band – David Longstreth, Amber Coffman, Haley Dekle, Nat Baldwin, Olga Bell and Michael Johnson – released their seventh and most recent album ‘Swing Lo Magellan’ in 2012. Later in the same year, they also released the EP ‘About To Die’.
Since then, Amber Coffman has collaborated with Major Lazer, Snoop Lion and J. Cole. She was also listed as a contributor on Frank Ocean’s ‘Blonde’ album.
Meanwhile, Longstreth co-wrote Kanye West, Rihanna and Paul McCartney’s 2015 hit single ‘FourFiveSeconds’. Both he and fellow band member Nat Baldwin played at rallies earlier this year for Democrat Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Another band member, Olga Bell, released a solo album called ‘Tempo’ in May.
Dirty Projectors formed in 2002 and released their debut album ‘The Glad Fact’ the following year. They collaborated with Talking Heads’ David Byrne in 2008 and Bjork in 2009. In 2012, Solange duetted with the band on a cover of their song ‘Stillness Is The Move’ – watch the performance below.
