Twin Shadow at BAM earlier this month (more by David Andrako)
Twin Shadow

As mentioned, Twin Shadow will release his sophomore LP, Confess, on July 10 via 4AD. You've heard the first single, "Five Seconds," and now Twin Shadow has just revealed that he'll give the video for that song a pretty interesting premiere. It's going to premiere in NYC on a Jumbotron in Times Square on June 18 and will be followed by a live Twin Shadow performance directly after.

According to a press release, the event is part of Art Takes Times Square, a program presented by Artists Wanted, Chashama, and Times Square Alliance, "to present artists from around the world in brilliant lights on a massive scale in one of the most iconic locations in the world."

Twin Shadow will also be supporting his new album on a tour which includes the previously discussed NYC show at Webster Hall on September 27. Since we first mentioned that tour, Swedish indie poppers Niki and the Dove were added as openers to a portion of it, including the Webster Hall show. Tickets for that show are still available.

You can catch Niki and the Dove, whose debut LP, Instinct is due out on August 7 via Sub Pop, in NYC even sooner when they play the previously mentioned Popgun Northside party at Glasslands on June 14 with Selebrities and Beacon. Tickets for that show are still available.
