Dirty Projectors have released Super João, the third in a cycle of 5EPs that marks the band’s growth and transition throughout 2020. Each EP to date has shined a light on a specific band member, and Super João focuses on lead Projector Dave Longstreth.
As with each EP, all the songs were written and produced by Longstreth, who collaborates on lyrics with each of DP’s featured vocalists: Maia Friedman (who fronts Windows Open), Felicia Douglass (Flight Tower), and Kristin Slipp (a forthcoming EP). For Super João, Longstreth recorded with his Los Angeles neighbor Kyle Thomas (King Tuff), while the lyrics to “Moon, If Ever” were written with Kyle Field (Little Wings).
On November 13th, the EP cycle will come together in one cohesive, twenty-track anthology entitled 5EPs. It will be available as a standard black double LP, with a clear version exclusive to indie stores, as well as a CD, and a deluxe box set of five 12″ colored vinyl.
