New track from Holter's upcoming third album; tour dates below

Experimental LA multi-instrumentalist Julia Holter has just posted the third track off her forthcoming Loud City Song album, her follow-up to last year's Ekstasis, out on August 20 through Domino. It's a romantic cut, swells of soundtrack strings overwriting jazzy instrumentation, which forms one half of the album's Gigi-inspired core tracks. The images accompanying the track are shots taken by Rick Bahto showing the album's recording session.

Holter will be setting out on tour in the UK and Ireland in November, following a couple of festival slots beginning next week:

Fri 16 - Green Man Festival, Black Mountain, Wales
Sat 17 - Beacons Festival, Skipton
Tue 20 - Cecil Sharp House, London

Tue 12 - Komedia, Brighton
Wed 13 - Deaf Institute, Manchester
Thu 14 - Howard Assembly Hall, Leeds
Fri 15 - Leaf, Liverpool
Sat 16 - The Cube, Bristol
Sun 17 - Dublin Unitarian Church, Dublin
Tue 19 - Whelans, Dublin
Wed 20 - CCA., Glasgow
