We haven't heard from Lady Lamb the Beekeeper since she released her fantastic debut Ripely Pine, but that all changes today. She's just announced her brand new album After, which will be available via Mom + Pop on 3 March. She's already released one song from the record titled 'Billions of Eyes' (which is available as an instant grat track if you pre-order on iTunes), and now you can stream a second song 'Spat Out Spit'.

A press release states that After finds Aly Spaltro, the woman behind Lady Lamb, looking into “inherent dualities … both the internal and external, the before and after. Her most palpable fears and memories are on display here, with a familiar vulnerability even more direct than her last effort.” She also talked a bit about 'Spat Out Spit' and how you should experience the song, saying “As you listen and view, I encourage you to notice how uniquely strange you are, and how unwaveringly, incredibly, mesmerizingly brilliant it is that you exist at all".

Not just that, though - she's also announced a pretty huge run of North American tour dates for later on this spring, all of which kick off in Brooklyn at Rough Trade New York. The full list of shows are after (heh) the track.
