Hurray for the Riff Raff, the project of Alynda Segarra, is back with a new album, Life on Earth. It's their eighth LP, the follow-up to 2017's The Navigator and it's due out February 18, 2022 via Nonesuch, their first album for the label. Segarra recorded Life on Earth, which Brad Cook (Megafaun, Bon Iver, etc) produced, during COVID lockdown and it was inspired by The Clash, Beverly Glenn-Copeland, Bad Bunny, and Emergent Strategy author adrienne maree brown.

The first single from Life on Earth is "Rhododendron," and you can watch the video, directed by Lucia Honey, below. The song is about "finding rebellion in plant life," Segarra says. "Being called by the natural world and seeing the life that surrounds you in a way you never have. A mind expansion. A psychedelic trip. A spiritual breakthrough. Learning to adapt, and being open to the wisdom of your landscape. Being called to fix things in your own backyard, your own community."

Hurray for the Riff Raff are heading out on a North American tour with Anjimile next year beginning in March, with dates in Atlanta, Austin, Los Angeles (Lodge Room on March 25), San Francisco, Vancouver, Denver, Chicago, Boston, NYC (Elsewhere on April 15), Philadelphia, Washington DC, Nashville and more. Some shows, NYC included, are also with Amelia Jackie, and you can see all dates below.
