Aldous Harding has announced her anticipated fourth album, Warm Chris, which will be out March 25 via 4AD. This is her third in a row made with producer John Parrish at Rockfield Studios ("My favorite place on earth," says Aldous) and it features appearances by H. Hawkline, Seb Rochford, Gavin Fitzjohn, and Sleaford Mods' Jason Williamson.

The first single from the album is "Lawn," which has a skittering rhythm similar to "The Barrell" from 2019's great Designer but with more of a faeryfolk feel. "Listening back, it sounds to me like there’s something completely new happening with my voice," Aldous told BBC6's Lauren Laverne. "The vocals are tiny. I won’t try to speak about sound too much, because it’s here, and I don’t want to ruin or create a surprise. It reminds me personally/musically of a large horse trying to keep up with a train."

There's also a video for "Lawn" which Aldous talked to the BBC about: "This video is pretty luxurious for me, but that’s what I saw when I shut my eyes and said 'Show me,' that sort of thing. So that’s what we made. Turns out it was just the thing. Music’s wonderful that way. The video was directed by Martin Sagadin and myself. Warm Chris is like the others, more a name than a story. Like Sarah or Ralph, it has that name because that’s what I want to call it for the rest of its life - a proper name."

Watch the "Lawn" video below.

Aldous will be on tour this June, including a stops at NYC's Webster Hall on June 9 and Los Angeles' The Wiltern on June 24. All dates are listed below.
