Listen to New Pornographers’ Latest Single, ‘This Is the World of the Theatre’
New Pornographers fans have to hold out until April to hear their next LP, but the band’s making the wait a little easier with the release of the set’s second single, “This Is the World of the Theatre.”
The new track, now on streaming services and embedded below, arrives a month after the release of previous single “High Ticket Attractions” — which was issued alongside New Pornographers’ announcement that they’d be putting out their new album Whiteout Conditions on April 7.
The upcoming LP, the group’s seventh overall and first since 2014’s Brill Bruisers, opens some new chapters for New Pornographers: it’ll be the first album for new drummer Joe Seiders, a touring sideman with several years of tenure, and it also marks their first record without guitarist Dan Bejar. As is generally the case with pre-release tracks these days, “This Is the World of the Theatre” — which features lead vocals from singer Neko Case — is available as an instant download with digital album pre-orders.
New Pornographers, who are scheduled to embark on a U.S. tour shortly after Whiteout Conditions arrives, are taking full advantage of streaming services with the album’s promotional campaign. Frontman A.C. Newman recently put together a Spotify playlist, “Things I Like,” offering fans a window into songs he currently has in his personal heavy rotation. Visit the band’s official online store to take advantage of special pre-order configurations, including a white vinyl edition of the new album.
