Sylvan Esso just played Newport Folk Festival, where they surprised the crowd by both announcing their new album, No Rules Sandy, and performing the whole thing. The album will be out August 12 via Loma Vista.

The band say their first three albums complete a trilogy and they are moving on with this one. Amelia Meath says that No Rules Sandy “feels like who we actually are. It just feels like us. We’re not trying to fit into the mold, just happily being our freak selves," while Nick Sanborn adds, “I think that the ultimate effect of our last record and the pandemic has been the feeling of like, ‘Fuck that, I know what I want.' And it's now, or never. So let's get out there and do it.”

The album includes recent singles "Sunburn" and "Your Reality" and they've just shared an ebullient new single, "Didn't Care."

Sylvan Esso will give fans an "early experience of No Rules Sandy in its full, seamless completion" at free events in Brooklyn (Pioneer Works on 7/27) and Los Angeles (Gold Diggers on 8/4) happening just before their tour with Odesza. All dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, Meath and her Mountain Man bandmake Alexandra Sauser-Monnig just released their debut album as The A's.
