The song “Listen To Your Friends” was produced by Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend; the track, “Paracetamol” was produced by Neil Comber; and “Brazil” was produced by Max Marlow. Declan, an adept songwriter and multi-instrumentalist wrote most of the songs on the 11-track LP. See below for full tracklist.The album is available for pre-order digitally here.

Tickets for these dates are on sale now and available here.
