HOLY MOLY HAVE WE GOT SOME MAAAAAJOR NEWS FOR YOU! Dessa has just announced the details behind her brand new full-length album, Bury the Lede, out September 29th on Doomtree Records. That’s the striking album artwork below, designed by Andy McAlpine with photography from Sam Gehrke.

Bury the Lede was created over the past several years with close collaborators Lazerbeak and Andy Thompson, and Dessa has just released not one but TWO lead singles today for your listening pleasure. Watch the incredible music video for “Hurricane Party” below, directed once again by  the incomparable Aleutian Calabay.
