Camera Obscura Announce First Album in 11 Years, Share New Single ‘Big Love’

Camera Obscura have announced their first new album in 11 years. The Desire Lines follow-up is called Look to the East, Look to the West, and it lands May 3 via Merge. Check out the lead single ‘Big Love’, which features pedal steel by Tim Davidson, and scroll down for the album cover, tracklist, and the band’s upcoming tour dates.

In 2015, following the death of keyboardist Carey Lander, Camera Obscura went on an extended hiatus. The band, led by guitarist and vocalist Tracyanne Campbell, made the new album with Jari Haapalainen, who produced the band’s 2006 LP Let’s Get Out of This Country and 2009’s My Maudlin Career.

“‘Big Love’ is our tribute to Waylon Jennings, with a nod to Sandy Denny and prog rock band Scope,” Campbell said in a statement. “It’s a song about not looking back, having faith in the present and future.”
