    Cate Le Bon has announced a new album, Reward, her first release through new label home Mexican Summer. Due out May 24th, the effort follows last year’s Hippo Lite from Le Bon’s collaboration with Tim Presley DRINKS, as well as her 2016 solo LP Crab Day.

    Marking Le Bon’s fifth solo full-length, Reward came together during a year of solitary living in the Lakes Distrcit of UK. While her days were spent teaching herself woodworking by building tables and chairs from scratch, her days found her “going a little bit crazy and playing the piano to [herself] and singing into the night.” That piano happened to be an old Meers, the first she ever owned.

    Co-produced by Samur Khouja, the 10-track record features contributions from Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint and H.Hawkine. Speaking of the title in a press release, Le Bon said,

    “People hear the word ‘reward’ and they think that it’s a positive word, and to me it’s quite a sinister word in that it depends on the relationship between the giver and the receiver. I feel like it’s really indicative of the times we’re living in where words are used as slogans, and everything is slowly losing its meaning.”
