Art pop musician Angel Deradoorian has announced her sophomore album. Find the Sun is due out May 22nd via new label home ANTI- Records and will be supported with tour dates alongside Stereolab.
The 10-track effort follows 2015’s The Expanding Flower Planet. It started to come together last summer, as Deradoorian spent her days along the beach in Rockaways, Queens. The LP was later fleshed out and completed all the way across the country in Marin County, California at studio Panoramic House.
According to a statement, Find the Sun draws inspiration from “the freedom of Can and the singing style of Damo Suzuki as well as the influence of Indian spirituality on free jazz masters like Pharoah Sanders and Sun Ra.” The spiritual depth of the music works hand in hand with the LP’s larger themes of self-reflection.
“Overall, a lot of these songs are about trying to reach yourself – how to be your most brilliant self,” said Deradoorian, formerly of The Dirty Projectors. “Because we come from a culture that doesn’t actually support this. We are so deeply programmed to obey societal boundaries that we don’t even know the power we contain within.” She added, “Find the Sun is a record to sit and listen to, and ask yourself about your Self.”
To preview the forthcoming collection, Deradoorian has shared the magical first single, “Saturnine Night”. Stream that below and then pre-order the new album.
