Aldous Harding has announced details of her new album, Designer, which will be out April 26 via 4AD/Flying Nun. As on 2017's Party, she worked with producer John Parish (PJ Harvey) and the record features contributions from frequent Cate Le Bon collaborators Huw Evans (H. Hawkline) and Stephen Black (Sweet Baboo). The first single is the absolutely lovely "The Barrel" and comes with a decidedly quirky and cool video directed by Aldous and Martin Sagadin. You can watch that below.

As mentioned, Aldous will be touring in April, including NYC-area shows at Brooklyn's Rough Trade on 4/8 (tickets) and Kingston's BSP on 4/11 (tickets). All tour dates are listed below.
