The Dandy Warhols Announce 'Why You So Crazy' LP, Share Video Starring Jessica Paré
The band have also mapped out 2019 tour dates
Published Nov 14, 2018After teasing fans with a new track called "Forever," veteran indie rockers the Dandy Warhols have officially announced plans for their 10th studio album. It's called Why You So Crazy, and it will arrive on January 25 via Dine Alone.
The band are apparently as eclectic-sounding as ever on the forthcoming LP, making allusions to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Don MacLean's Chevy (that he drove to the levy) and David Bowie's Modern Love across songs that are described as everything from "off-kilter psych-pop" to "high country-fried Americana" to "gothic piano-propelled rumba."
The next offering from the album is "Be Alright," which comes with an accompanying video starring Mad Men's Jessica Paré. It was directed by frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor and shot at the band's Portland headquarters, a space dubbed "The Odditorium."
"I've been there many times and it is such a cool and ethereal place, full of psychedelia and gothic touches and auras, that it just makes your head spin trying to take all of it in as you walk through the unique rock n roll space," the video's writer and creator Kevin Moyer said in a statement. "So what better way than to use a head spinning media format to take the viewer on a magical journey through the Dandy Warhols own space and sound, with the new single 'Be Alright' making things exactly that along the way."
Additionally, the band have also mapped out a run of upcoming North American shows. See the full list of dates below the LP's tracklisting. Beyond that, watch the video for "Be Alright."
