Laura Marling has announced a new album with her latest project, LUMP. The group includes Marling and Mike Lindsay, founding member of Tunng and Throws, and their self-titled debut album will be released on June 1 via Dead Oceans. The album was inspired by early-20th-century Surrealism and the absurdist poetry of Edward Lear and Ivor Cutler, according to a press release, and the two musicians came together in 2016 while Marling was supporting Neil Young, expressing an admiration for each other’s music when they were introduced. The duo have shared the first video from the album, for “Curse of the Contemporary,” which features motion graphics animation from designer Esteban Diacono.
