Urban Animal (recently highlighted as one of our most anticipated albums of the fall) is Claude VonStroke‘s third original album and release number 100 for his own dirtybird Records and before its release later this month, the jolly giant is giving fans a sneak preview of all ten productions. “The Clapping Track” and “Can’t Wait” are already out on Beatport, and you can also grab “Dood” as a free download. With some of the tracks steeped in traditional dirtybird bass and others drawing from worldly influences (both inside and outside of the electronic music realm), CVS’s newest effort is going to be worth your ears both now and when you can grab the album in full.

Claude VonStroke’s forthcoming album Urban Animal isn’t due until September 24th, but he’s already released three track previews, one official release, and North American tour details. “Dood,” the fifth track on the album, employs robotic vocals and dirtybird’s signature bassline. Much of the tune has been heavily influenced by VonStroke’s time spent in Los Angeles producing the album.
Claude VonStroke is preparing for the release of his forthcoming album Urban Animal, which is good news for fans. Last week he released the album’s first single and now he’s announced the album’s accompanying US tour dates. Santa Claude is kicking off the North American tour in his home base — San Francisco — and hitting 19 more spots after that. VonStroke will be accompanied by dirtybird young gun J. Phlip throughout the tour.
Pre-sale tickets for the tour go on sale August 14th and become available to the general public on August 16th. Pre-sale tickets will be available via Wantickets and general public tickets via ClaudeVonStroke.com.
Today’s a good day to be a dirtybird fan; label-head Claude Vonstroke is gearing up for the release of his third album with two track previews from Urban Animal. The album is described as an amalgamation of sounds and snippets from Mr. Vonstroke’s “busy and sometimes frantic life.”
The first two singles set for release from the album are “Can’t Wait” and “The Clapping Track,” respectively. Both singles are classically Claude but we’re partial to “The Clapping Track,” which is comprised of 16 claps cut apart and reunited. Check them out below and pick them up on August 6th when they’re released worldwide. The album is set for release in full on September 17th. Click below the jump for the full tracklist.
