Dear Nora announces new album “human futures”, shares “scrolls of doom”, tour

Katy Davidson reactivated them Dear Nora project in 2017 and released the new album Example of skulls the following year, and now they’re ready to follow that up with another new album, human futuresreleased October 28 via Orindal Records (Pre-order). It’s actually the first album in Dear Nora’s 20+ year career to be recorded in a commercial recording studio, and according to the biography written by Chris Cohen, Katy and their bandmates — Greg Campanile ( drums), Nicholas Krgovich (piano/synth) and Zach Burba (bass/synth/drums) – did this one more collaboratively than usual. There’s also a song that was co-written with Frankie Cosmos.

The first taste is the first single “scrolls of doom”, a stellar track with dark, funny lyrics and a more overtly produced sound, showing Katy’s ability to change her sonic palette while staying true to her DIY sensibility. Listen to “scrolls of doom” and check out the artwork and track listing for human futuresbelow.

Dear Nora will be on tour this fall, with a handful of dates on opposite coasts and even more TBA. They will be in Brooklyn on November 7 at Baby’s All Right. All dates below.
