Check out the “DIVER” video below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art, as well as Lala Lala’s upcoming tour dates.

Lala Lala’s last LP was 2018’s The Lamb—which was our Album of the Week. West co-produced the new album with Yoni Wolf of WHY?. Drummer Nnamdi Ogbonnaya plays on “DIVER” and West co-directed the song’s video with Brielle Brilliant.
