Dirty Projectors have announced their expansive and ambitious project titled "5EPs" – a series of 5 x EPs to be released by the band in 2020.

Longstreth wrote and produced the music, collaborating on lyrics with each of the featured vocalists from the band - Maia Friedman on Windows Open, Felicia Douglass on Flight Tower, and Kristin Slipp on a forthcoming EP. On Super João, Longstreth wrote lyrics with Kyle Field (Little Wings) and recorded straight to tape with his Los Angeles neighbor Kyle Thomas (King Tuff). 

The EP sequence will be sold in one cohesive, twenty-track anthology entitled 5EPs. Available physically and digitally via Domino on November 13th, the same day as the final installment, the evolving and diverse suite of styles and voices brings the full arrival of dynamic new Dirty Projectors.

"This cycle of EPs is about growth, transition, liminal space, shifting identity. Alan Ginsberg had a phrase 'first thought, best thought' to talk about a particular kind of writing - not automatic writing exactly, but quick, spontaneous, trusting. For me, these songs are about rediscovering that place, after the stereo ouroboros of the Ivo Shandor era (Dirty Projectors, Lamp Lit Prose). And I think for us - Felicia, Maia, Kristin, Mike and me - it's about finding it for the first time: playing, writing, learning together as a new band." – Dave Longstreth.
