LUMP, the project from Laura Marling and Mike Lindsay, have shared a new song.

Following We Cannot Resist, Gamma Ray arrives ahead of the duo's second album 'Animal', due out this Friday (July 30) via Partisan/Chrysalis. 

Cast across layered vocals over a pulsing, hypnotic rhythm, the track comes with an animated video created and directed by Marling. Lindsey said:

"There’s this part from the second half where you hear a voice, and in my mind that was the LUMP creature speaking to us saying 'Excuse me, I don’t think we’ve been introduced', and then it does this kind of 'Ahhh!’ sound, that's LUMP going through my Eventide H949 Harmonizer. I think that's how you say 'LUMP' in LUMP language. Laura also uses the word 'gawped,' which is brilliant."

Marling added: "The lyrics are all just nonsense writing, but I always had in my mind a story I'd heard about my Dad’s cousin dying. He died very young, he committed suicide sadly, obviously long before I was born. He was incredibly good looking and everyone loved him, and when they tolled the bell at his funeral two of my Dad’s sisters fainted. They were so overcome. 'Gawping' comes from French singer Georges Brassens, who did a really weird song called 'Brave Margot,' and in the translation there is something about the men 'gawping'."

LUMP will support the LP with previously announced UK shows in August and September. Tickets are on sale now.
