Daughter Announce New Album ‘Not to Disappear’ + Share ‘Do the Right Thing’
Daughter have announced they will return at the beginning of the new year with Not to Disappear, a follow-up to their 2013 debut If You Leave. Today (Sept. 30), the English dream-pop trio has shared a music video for “Do the Right Thing.”
While the six-minute song mirrors If You Leave’s ruminative soundscapes and songwriting, a press release proposes Daughter’s sophomore effort “finds the band making confident strides forward” in both arenas.
“Do the Right Thing” deals in “the delicate subject of dementia and its debilitating, all-pervading effect on family.” Those themes play out in the song’s music video -- spearheaded by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, the directors behind Nick Cave’s sort-of documentary 20,000 Days on Earth -- which is the first in a series of three clips from Daughter. Each video will depict a unique story written by Stuart Evers.
The 10-track Not to Disappear is due out Jan. 15 of next year via 4AD; that’s the track list and cover art below. Daughter have yet to share any North American tour dates, but they have announced three shows in the U.K. They’ll play Glasgow on Nov. 16, Bristol on Nov. 18 and their hometown of London on Nov. 19.
