Dirty Projectors are set to release their About to Die EP on November 6, and today the band released one of the new tracks. ‘While You’re Here’ is a spare, orchestral and brief song which is dedicated to former TV on the Radio bassist Gerard Smith who tragically passed away in 2011. Frontman Dave Longstreth tweeted:

“Hey, here’s a song I wrote on the day of Gerard Smith’s wake in BK 2 summers ago. This song is for him. Miss u Gerry!”

Dirty Projectors will be in New Zealand for two shows in January.

About to Die EP is out November 5. Listen to ‘While You’re Here’ below (via Stereogum).
