Girlpool announce new album ‘What Chaos Is Imaginary’

Listen to ‘Hire’, the first single from the duo’s third album, out in February via ANTI-.

Girlpool have announced details of their third album! ‘What Chaos Is Imaginary’ will come out next February via ANTI-.

The album was previewed by two recent singles - ‘Lucy’s’ and ‘Where You Sink’ - and the band have now shared a third teaser in the form of the album’s lead single ‘Hire’.

“I was experiencing a lot of mental health issues,” says Harmony Tividad of the record’s title. “That song comes from a place of being disconnected from reality. The world is so complicated. It’s hard to believe in magic, or that anything exists.”

Cleo Tucker expands: “It’s hard for me to feel completion without achieving a vision that I have. I’ll imagine the kind of climate I want to create inside a song. Once I fall in love with the direction, it’s getting there that can take time.”

‘What Chaos Is Imaginary’ comes out on 1st February via ANTI-. Listen to ‘Hire’ and view the album’s tracklisting below.
