With tremendous albums and releases behind them, it’s no wonder that we’re always excited to hear new music from Dirty Projectors. The outfit of David Longstreth and co have shared a warmhearted and gorgeous new song, ‘Overlord’, featuring guitarist Maia Friedman on lead vocals. “Tongue-in-cheek ode to surveillance capitalism? Critique of our primal confusion of charisma for actual leadership? Cautionary tale about blind faith in technology? Anti-fascist manifesto?”, asks the press release, adding: “Who knows, but ’Overlord’ feels like a ‘Both Sides Now’ for our brave new Amazon Prime world.”
‘Overlord’ comes with an accompanying video, directed by the band’s own Longstreth. Watch it now.
