Laura Marling and Tunng’s Mike Lindsay have announced new LUMP album ‘Animal’.

The forthcoming release will be the second full-length to come from the artists dreamy collaborative project and is due out on 30 April 2021.

The record’s title track marks the pair’s first new music since dropping their acclaimed eponymous debut album back in 2018. The song was recorded at Lindsay’s home studio in Margate, Kent.


Although ‘Animal’ started out as a word Marling threw into a lyric simply to meet a rhythm, it quickly captured the mood of both the album and band.

The British songstress commented, “There’s a little bit of a theme of hedonism on the album, of desires running wild…And also it fed into the idea we had from the start of thinking of LUMP as a kind of representation of instincts, and the world turned upside down.”

Lindsay added, “We created LUMP as a sort of persona and an idea and a creature…Through LUMP we find our inner animal, and through that animal we travel into a parallel universe.”

LUMP have also confirmed that they will be hitting the road on tour in support of the new album this August/September – details below:
