Wye Oak have announced details of their new album, which is titled The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs, and will be out April 6 via Merge. Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack live in different parts of the country these days (Durham, NC and Marfa, TX, respectively), and they traveled to each other's homes to work on and make the album. The first single is the LP's title track, an ethereal dancepop number that bears a distinctive Wye Oak-ian soaring melody. Listen to that below.

The band will be in NYC next month for that special orchestral show at Symphony Space on February 16 with Metropolis Ensemble and Brooklyn Youth Chorus (tickets), then they'll be on tour, proper, this spring. Dates include another NYC show which happens at Brooklyn Steel on May 15. That show has very solid support from Torres (no word yet if she's opening other dates too). Tickets for the Brooklyn show go on sale Friday, February 2 at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (1/31) at noon.

All tour dates are listed, along with album artwork, below.
