Academy Award nominee, Taylor Swift collaborator and all-around hard-working musician Owen Pallett will release his fourth LP, In Conflict, on May 13 via Domino/Secret City.
The album is Owen’s first solo effort since 2010’s Heartland and follows four years of wide-ranging accomplishments, from a ballet to major label pop record arrangements to video game, TV and film soundtracks, including his aforementioned Oscar-nominated work with Arcade Fire on Spike Jonze’s Her. (Canadian label Secret City will also reissue a deluxe edition of Heartland later this year.)
As per the press release:

“The record is meant to approach ‘insanity’ in a positive way,” Owen says– emphasis on the ironizing scare quotes around singular notions of insanity. “Depression, addiction, gender trouble, and the creative state are presented as positive, loveable, empathetic ways of being. Not preferable, per se, but all as equal, valid positions that we experience, which make us human.”

His collaborators on In Conflict include Brian Eno, The Czech FILMharmonic Orchestra and core rhythm section of Robbie Gordon and Matt Smith. Check out the album trailer, tracklisting and a list of spring tour dates below.
