As previously posted, DP released a new song on to the Internet, and that song comes from their new album Swing Lo Magellan which is out July 10 in the U.S. and July 9 internationally via Domino. A press release reads:

“It’s an album of songs, an album of songwriting,” says Longstreth.

The songs of Swing Lo Magellan are culled from a sprawling twelve months of constant writing and recording in a weird house in Delaware County, New York (four hours northwest of the city). Longstreth, who produced and mixed, wrote seventy new songs and beats. The band — Amber Coffman (vocals & guitar), Nat Baldwin (Bass), Brian McOmber (Drums) & Haley Dekle (vocals) – – joined him periodically, rehearsing the new music more or less constantly in the house’s A-frame attic (vocalist Angel Deradoorian is on hiatus). The twelve songs of Swing Lo Magellan were winnowed down from about forty finished demos….
