Aldous Harding announces her new album with the brilliant new song 'The Barrel'

New Zealander and all-around star in the making Aldous Harding shared her brilliant new single, ‘The Barrel’, last week and we’re so gutted that we missed the news we’ve made it our Track of the Day.

The lead single from Harding’s upcoming new album Designer which is out on 4AD on the 26th April even comes with a wonderful new video. The LP will be the follow up to 2017’s Party and employ that record’s producer John Parish as the man behind the desk yet again.

Judging by ‘The Barrel’ the album will be another triumph of off-kilter, alternative and honest pop. The track is a delicate and effortlessly designed product of an artist looking to flourish like the fluid, floral songsmith she is.

The new video for ‘The Barrel’ is a testament to her artistry and sees Harding in a variety of different outfits and awkward moments singing her beautiful track down the barrel of the camera. There are a few charming added extras that are worth staying tuned in to the video for.

Take a look at the video below, and get ready for her upcoming LP Designer, out April 26th via 4AD
