Circuit des Yeux signs to Drag City for new LP, shares “Paper Bag,” touring
Haley Fohr's Circuit des Yeux project has signed to Drag City for her newest album, Reaching for Indigo, due out October 20 via her new label home (pre-order). It's the first Circuit des Yeux album since 2015's In Plain Speech (Thrill Jockey), and also follows Haley's 2016 album as Jackie Lynn. She also released the record's lead single, "Paper Bag", and you can stream it below. The song's first half is a dose of experimental electronics, before acoustic guitar and drums intertwine with Haley's brooding vocals, turning the song into a different beast entirely.
Circuit des Yeux will also be going on a brief tour beginning later this month, including a stop at NYC's Rough Trade on November 15. Tickets go on sale Friday (8/4) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (8/2) at noon.
All dates (including a Chicago show where Haley is playing Nico's Chelsea Girl) are listed below.
