Singer/songwriter Lael Neale left Los Angeles in April of 2020, returning to her family's farm in rural Virginia, where she made her new album, Star Eaters Delight, due out April 21 via Sub Pop. "The unbroken silences on the farm compelled me to break them with sound," she says. "This album is louder and more external, calling out to the world." It features arrangements and production by Guy Blakeslee, mastering by Chris Coady, and you can see the cover art and tracklist below.

The latest single is "In Verona," a compelling track which finds Lael invoking Romeo & Juliet over a repeating piano pattern and swells of synths. Watch the accompanying video, which Lael directed, below.

Lael has tour dates lined up in support of Star Eaters Delight, with US dates in April and early May, followed by shows in Europe and the UK which run until early June. See all dates below.

The NYC show is at Public Records on May 5. Tickets are on sale now.
