Hibou's new single, Désir

Hibou, the critically acclaimed dream-pop project of Seattle's Peter Michel, has released a lush new French language single Désir featuring French artist LUHA, available today at digital services everywhere.

"In the winter of 2020 Hibou performed at Supersonic, a venue in the 12th arrondissement of Paris," recalls Michel. "The show was one of those beautiful moments where I felt like I had made all the right choices to be on stage amongst such loving people. After our set, I was introduced to LUHA and was quickly drawn to her music."

"When the pandemic hit and I was unable to return to France, I began writing lyrics in French to aid me in my patience," he explained. "I'm thrilled to have had LUHA contribute to 'Désir'. Her presence sits at the core of the song." 19 Feb 2021

Death Cab for Cutie's The Georgia E.P.

From a video message released this morning by the band:

Because we are so happy with the results of the recent Georgia runoff elections, we have decided to release our EP 'The Georgia E.P.' – originally released on Bandcamp for 24 hours in early December – today on all streaming services, so that everybody can take a listen to it. It will also be available soon on peach vinyl, which we're all very excited about.

It's an EP of covers of acts from Georgia including Neutral Milk Hotel, Vic Chesnutt, R.E.M., TLC, and Cat Power, and we had a blast making it.

We raised over $100K for voting rights organization Fair Fight, which we've always been big supporters of; we're really stoked. So, we hope you enjoy it and we hope to see you guys in person very soon!

The EP is available now on streaming services, while the vinyl version is available here for pre-order. 13 Jan 2021
