Shilpa Ray will release her new album, Door Girl, via Northern Spy on September 22. The title comes from Shilpa's time working the door at Lower East Side venue Pianos, and that's where the cover art, above, comes from as well. The cover was shot by frequent BV contributor Ebru Yildiz and she made her directorial debut helming the video for the album's first single, "EMT Police and the Fire Department." Ebru's stark, black and white style -- here capturing Shilpa dancing in strobe flashes -- matches well with the intensity of the song. You can watch that below.

Appropriately, Shilpa will be celebrating Door Girl's release with shows at Pianos on September 20 & 21. Tickets for those shows are on sale now. She'll also play a LA release show at The Satellite on September 28.
