Alex G has announced his next album: God Save the Animals is out September 23 via Domino. The follow-up to 2019’s House of Sugar will include the previously shared track ‘Blessing’, as well as a new single called ‘Runner’. Check out a video for it, shot by Aldo Fisk, below, along with the album’s cover artwork and tracklist.
As with his previous records, the Philadelphia musician wrote and demoed the songs on God Save the Animals at home by himself; during its creation, however, Alex G visited multiple studios in greater Philadelphia in search of new sounds and “a routine that was outside of my apartment” during the pandemic. As a result, the LP features the work of “some half-dozen engineers,” per a press release, as well as individual contributions from his bandmates – guitarist Samuel Acchione, drummer Tom Kelly, and bassist John Heywood – and frequent collaborator Molly Germer on strings and vocals.
