My Brightest Diamond -- This Is My Hand LP cover art

Experimental popsmith My Brightest Diamond (aka Shara Worden) is gearing up for the release of the follow-up to 2011's excellent All Things Will Unwind. It's called This Is My Hand and is due out on September 16 via Asthmatic Kitty. That's its cover art above, and you can take a listen to the LP opener "Pressure" at the bottom of this post. Worden and co. get right down to business on the opening track, incorporating the Detroit Party Marching Band into Shara's whirlwind mix of horns, synths, beats, woodwinds, and more. Tracklisting for This Is My Hand can also be found below. In advance of the LP, My Brightest Diamond welcomed the five-song None More Than You EP via Asthmatic Kitty last week. You'll find a full stream of the EP below.

My Brightest Diamond will be embarking on a fall/winter international tour in support of her new EP and forthcoming LP. That tour includes a show at Lincoln Hall on Novemer 13, and advance tickets are on sale now.

All MBD dates, streams of "Pressure" and the new EP, and tracklisting for both albums lie after the jump...
