Beth Jeans Houghton is set to release a new album this spring under her new name, Du Blonde. The new record follows 2012's Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose (as Beth Jeans Houghton) and sees the Newcastle singer making a fresh start musically:

"This is a new sound, a new project," she says in the press release. "Du Blonde is a new incarnation and one step closer to me assuming my ultimate form. Having freed myself from the rusty and bloody shackles of Beth Jeans Houghton – both musically and spiritually – I felt it only right to step forth under a new name and let the rituals commence."

She plays London's Roundhouse on February 20th, and 6Music Festival 2015 on the 22nd. Check out trailer for the new LP:
