LUMP have returned today (May 5) with news of their second album ‘Animal’, which is set for release on July 30 via Chrysalis/Partisan Records.
Recorded at Lindsay’s home studio in Margate, Marling said that working on ‘Animal’ provided a release from writing and recording her acclaimed 2020 solo album ‘Song For Our Daughter’.
“It became a very different thing about escaping a persona that has become a burden to me in some way,” she recalled in a press release about working on the new LUMP material. “It was like putting on a superhero costume.”
You can hear LUMP’s new song ‘Animal’ in the above video.
“We created LUMP as a sort of persona and an idea and a creature,” Lindsay added about the purpose of his collaborative project with Marling. “Through LUMP we find our inner animal, and through that animal we travel into a parallel universe.”
LUMP will take ‘Animal’ on tour in August and September, with tickets set to go on general sale on Friday (May 7) – a pre-sale is open now here.
