Out in May, it's executive produced by Thom Yorke

Clark has shared details of his 14th studio album, Sus Dog.

Spanning 12 tracks, the album is executive produced by Thom Yorke, who also provides bass and vocals for one of the cuts. British-German artist Anika appears on another of the tracks, while Clark's own vocals feature heavily across the record for the first time. You can listen to lead cut 'Town Crank' above.

In a statement about his work on the album, Thom Yorke said: "Chris [Clark] wrote me to say he'd started singing, looking for feedback/advice or whatever, because it was kind of new shark-infested waters for him. I've been into what he does for years, and I ended up being a kind of backseat driver as he pieced all the oddness of it together, which was fascinating.

"I wasn't surprised to discover he came at singing and words through another door completely, which to me was the most interesting and exciting part. The first thing he sent me was him singing about being stuck between two floors and I was already sold. To me the way he approached it all wasn't the usual singer songwriter guff thank god; it mirrored the way he approached all his composition and recording, but this time it had a human face. His face."

Sus Dog follows on from Clark's 2021 album Playground In A Lake.

Throttle Records will release Sus Dog on May 26, 2023.
