Pre-order Dave Douglas ‘Secular Psalms’ on Bandcamp now!

Today we’re launching the Bandcamp pre-order for Secular Psalms, a new Dave Douglas studio album featuring a newly commissioned suite of ten pieces, with an entirely new group of young international musicians.

The piece is inspired by the magnificent altarpiece know as The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb by Jan and Hubert van Eyck, and was premiered in Ghent, Belgium in early November.

The album features Marta Warelis (keys), Berlinde Deman (vox, tuba, serpent), Tomeka Reid (cello), Lander Gyselinck (drums) and Frederik Leroux (guitar, lute).

You can pre-order the album now on Bandcamp here and get one track, “Agnus Dei” now. Subscribers have this track in their feed now.

The album will be released on April 1st. Check out the album details below.
