Dirty Projectors, ‘While You’re Here’ [Listen]
Dirty Projectors have lined up a Nov. 6 release date for their 'About to Die' EP, the follow-up to the band's latest full-length album, 'Swing Lo Magellan,' which dropped in July. The Projectors have just issued a track from the EP titled 'While You’re Here,' and frontman David Longstreth took to Twitter to reveal that the tune was penned as a tribute to late TV on the Radio bassist Gerard Smith, who passed away last year after a battle with lung cancer.
"Hey, here's a song I wrote on the day of Gerard Smith's wake in BK 2 summers ago," Smith wrote in the post. "This song is for him. Miss u Gerry!" Joining 'While You’re Here' on the 'About to Die' EP will be the title track, which you can check out here, and two other songs: 'Here Til It Says I'm Not' and 'Simple Request.'
