Little Dragon have marked their return with the announcement of a new studio album, New Me, Same Us.
The record, entirely self-produced and recorded at their long-term home-built studio in Gothenburg, arrives as the sound of a band going back to basics and falling back in love with their instruments: drums, bass, keyboards, harp, guitar and voice, to produce some of their most focussed and inarguably best music to date.
“This album has been the most collaborative for us yet,” the band explain, “which might sound weird considering we’ve been making music together for all these years, but we worked hard at being honest, finding the courage to let go of our egos and be pieces of something bigger.”
“We are all on our own personal journeys,” they say, “full of change, yet still we stand united with stories we believe in, that make us who we are.”
To coincide with the news, Little Dragon has unveiled the album’s first track ‘Hold On’ alongside tours dates (which can be view below).
