Cate Le Bon is set to release new album 'Crab Day' on April 15th.
The material was recorded at Panoramic House studio, West Marin, California last spring, and it seems to be an ambitious return from the artist.
Produced by Noah Georgson and Josiah Steinbrick, the album will be accompanied by a short film shot in Berlin by film-maker Phil Collins.
Cate Le Bon explains: "'Crab Day' was lovingly formed in the mouth of the Pacific Ocean, as it quietly mocked us with its magnitude. It’s the sound of the ‘accidentally on purpose’ coming together of the right people at precisely the right time in an environment that furnished and fuelled the abandonment we felt effortlessly. It’s a coalition of inescapable feelings and fabricated nonsense, each propping the other up. 'Crab Day' is an old holiday. 'Crab Day' is a new holiday. 'Crab Day' isn’t a holiday at all.”

Cate Le Bon has also confirmed plans for a "live experience" version of 'Crab Day' featuring (deep breath) "a set of equally composed and improvised adventures through tuned repetition, polyrhythm and Eastern themes, near and far, for movement and dance followed by half-time orange segments, costume changes and a reshuffling of the cabinet for a very special performance of 'Crab Day'."
British dates are as follows:
12 Cardiff The Gate
14 London Chats Palace
