Yves Tumor has announced their most accomplished and anticipated album to date. ‘Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds)’, is set for release March 17th via Warp Records.
Picking up where November’s ‘God is a Circle’ single release left off, the album’s intoxicating mélange of addictive melodies and adventurously executed arrangements is aptly demonstrated by ‘Echolalia,’ the new single shared alongside the announcement. The single is accompanied by a characteristically surreal video by longtime collaborator Jordan Hemingway that pays a transgressive, gory homage to Gulliver’s Travels.
Yves Tumor shifts, alters, and plays with the boundaries of contemporary art and culture in a boundlessly visceral and authentic sonic signature. With an arc that effortlessly graces rock, psychedelia, and electronica in a constant re-invention of pop music, comparisons only serve as limitations intended to define that which cannot be. Yves Tumor melds restraint and chaos in a soulful clarity; diluting reality by giving meaning to the abstract and allowing for dissonance to be seen and heard as harmony. ‘Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds)’ is produced by Noah Goldstein (worked with: Frank Ocean, Rosalía, Drake, Rihanna, Bon Iver), lending the album with a sonic signature that acts as a distillation and amplification of Yves’ previous work.
His earlier, dynamic live performances throughout sold-out venues across North America, UK and Europe were met with critical acclaim. Throughout the impressive and ever-expanding trajectory, Yves Tumor has been praised by The New Yorker as “unmissable” and a “quintessential performer” by The Austin Chronicle, and has been compared to the likeness of musical and cultural force Prince by The Washington Post, Grace Jones by The Austin Chronicle and Joy Division by Variety. Yves Tumor embodies and controls the unique and influential power to redefine pop music as we know it, with much more to come.
The all new album is Yves Tumor’s most intimate and personal statement to date, guiding the listener through a conceptually manifold spiritual journey –– circuitously weaving darkness to light, pop to innovation and cacophony to church-like calm. ‘Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds)’, is set for release March 17th. The new single ‘Echolalia’ is available HERE.
