Spiral Stairs, aka Scott Kannberg of Pavement and Preston School of Industry, will release his first new music in eight years this spring.

'Doris and The Daggers', the follow up to 2009's 'The Real Feel', is due for release on March 24 via Domino. It features Matt Harris on bass and Broken Social Scene’s Justin Peroff on drums, as well as guest appearances from Broken Social Scene's Kevin Drew, singer-songwriter Kelley Stoltz and the National’s Matt Berninger.

Discussing the record, Kannberg said:

“I guess I’ve been writing songs for a while now. I like hearing echoes of things I love in the music that I make. Writing music doesn’t come easy to me – it’s hard to write a song that’s good. But our memories slowly escape us as we get older, and in songs you kind of relive those moments, the things that matter.” 

Check out the video for the album's opener, Dance (Cry Wolf), starring Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, along with its tracklist and artwork, below.

  1. Dance (Cry Wolf)
  2. Emoshuns
  3. Dundee Man
