New Sounds: Little Dragon announce summer dates, channel Prince in new single ‘Celebrate’

Good news for selfish people of New England: Little Dragon are set to hit this road this summer for a handful of stateside shows with Glass Animals and Goldlink, but we here in Boston are getting the Swedish electronic-pop group all to ourselves.

Last week Little Dragon, still riding large off the mid-April release of new record Season High (Loma Vista), revealed a string of headlining club dates which includes an August 7 stop at Royale in Boston. Tickets went on sale just before the weekend hit.

To celebrate, Yukimi Nagano and the boys dropped an acid-trip video for their new single “Celebrate,” a funk-laden raised-glass to Prince that couldn’t come at a better time. Watch the Ossian Melin-directed clip below, and check out all the Little Dragon dates after the video jump.
