We're not long past Perfect Version, the delightful solo album from Julia Shapiro, and we already have news that her main band Chastity Belt have a new album in store. The Seattle quartet's fourth album is called Chastity Belt, so named because it's "a really good representation of who we all are, and I feel like we're at a point where we've really come into our own... We're more us than ever,” according to Shapiro. It was co-produced by Melina Duterte (aka Jay Som) and will come out through Hardly Art on September 20th.

Chastity Belt have also shared the first taste of the new record in the form of 'Ann's Jam', slowly swirling and caressing song of friendship and contemplation. It's not too far from the skeletal songs of Perfect Version, but with the rest of Chastity Belt backing her up, Shapiro's words don't seem as hopeless; there's a warmth and closeness to the sound of the band working quietly and patiently together. It's not a complex song, but 'Ann's Jam' manages to project a detailed combination of feelings, allowing it to wash over you without overwhelming you.
