Yves Tumor returns with long-awaited album

Yves Tumor has released the much-anticipated album, ‘Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds)’. The new project sees Yves Tumor reach new artistic heights in an uncanny recalibration of pop music. 

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.

The release marks the formal follow up to 2021’s acclaimed ‘The Asymptotical World’ EP, this EP included the song ‘Jackie’ which reached the number 1 song of 2021 spot via Crack Magazine and ended up in Pitchfork’s top 25 songs of the year. ‘Crushed Velvet’ was featured in Best of Spotify’s Indie for 2021 and in best songs of the year in Vogue Magazine. The preceding full length 2020 album ‘Heaven To A Tortured Mind’, which also yielded a cavalcade of critical praise saw Yves Tumor once again establish himself as a musical force to be reckoned with. The artist embodies and controls the unique and influential power to redefine pop music as we know it, with much more to come. 

On the 14th of November 2023, Yves Tumor will be performing in Paradiso Amsterdam. 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.

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 available HERE.
