It’s been four long years since Grouper released her last full-length, Ruins. But thank the ambient gods, as the musician has just announced a new LP (and her 11th!), Grid of Points. And she’s also shared the first single off the record, “Parking Lot.”

“Parking Lot” will appear on Grid of Points, scheduled to drop on April 27 off Kranky. While you wait, listen to the song here:
