Dirtybird boss Claude VonStroke has announced details of his third studio album, ‘Urban Animal’.
Marking the 100th release on Dirtybird, the record is slated for release across all formats on 17th September. As with previous VonStroke LP’s ‘Bird Brain’ and ‘Beware of the Bird’, it would seem that ‘Urban Animal’ applies its creator’s unique personality over some heavy grooves. With the press release stating the album’ aim of channeling ‘the experience of primal relief’ to be found in the ‘jungle’ of nightclub dancefloors, fans can no doubt look forward to some intriguing music. Lead single ‘Can’t Wait/The Clapping Track’, which can be heard below, is typical VonStroke, with the former a sullen bass heavy piano roller, and the latter a percussive party track that more than justifies its title.
Alongside the new music fans can look forward to innovative artwork, which transforms imagery of derelict American cityscapes into animal portraits, fully in keeping with the album’s title and concept.
