We are beyond proud to announce The Expanding Flower Planet, the debut LP from Deradoorian.

Many will recognize the name Angel Deradoorian from her past work with Dirty Projectors and Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, or even her vocal contribution to “Siren Song” from Flying Lotus’ 2014 You’re Dead!, but The Expanding Flower Planet finds the multi-instrumentalist shining brighter than ever before. 

The LP will release worldwide August 21 via Anticon (Tugboat Records in Japan), and is now available for preorder on CD/vinyl formats at our webshop. Digital preorder is also available via iTunes and comes with instant download of lead-track ”A Beautiful Woman”.

Jump over to Pitchfork to hear the track and read a bit more about this very exciting release.

Young Fathers were featured on NPR's concert series Tiny Desk this week to perform a couple tunes, including "Am I Not Your Boy" (taken from last year's DEAD LP) and "Only Child" (from 2013's TAPE TWO EP).
 
The short set is toned down from the gangs' normal theatrics, but the tunes play as well as always in the intimate setting of the NPR offices.
