It’s been a busy latter half of 2012 for Dirty Projectors. In July, they released their sixth full-length album, Swing Lo Magellan, as well as a long form music video, Hi Custodian, directed by bandleader David Longstreth and starring Longstreth and the other band members. Only a few months removed from the summertime buzz, they’ll release an EP titled About to Die on Nov. 6.
The band recently unveiled “While You’re Here,” one of the tracks to be featured on About to Die. The song is a somber, string-heavy and dedicated to TV on the Radio’s late bassist Gerard Smith, who passed away from cancer in April 2011.
Have a listen to “While You’re Here” below.
