Fire up those browsers at exactly 11:59 p.m. on Monday
night, June 1: that’s when NPR
Music is streaming the entire
new album from the Dirty Projectors
ahead of its release date. The
album, Bitte Orca, is being made available for free, on-demand
listening a full week before it arrives in stores as part of the site’s “Exclusive First Listen” series.


Longstreth formed Dirty Projectors in 2002, and the group now also counts Angel
Deradoorian, Amber Coffman and Brian McComber as principal members. Bitte
is their fifth studio album; NPR Music calls the record
“awe-inspiringly executed and marked by sparkling imagination.”



track listings and album information are available at NPR
Music, where there are also extensive archives of concerts,
interviews and reviews of Dirty Projectors, including the band’s set during NPR
Music’s SXSW showcase
. Dirty Projectors also performed with David
Byrne during the recent Dark
Was the Night Concert
in New
York City; that entire concert is streaming now at NPR Music.
