Canadian artist Owen Pallett returns with his latest album In Conflict on May 13th via Domino Records.

“The Riverbed” is the record’s first single, a throbbing slice of utterly gorgeous orchestral electro intensity. Pallett says the new album “is meant to approach ‘insanity’ in a positive way, emphasis on the ironizing scare quotes around singular notions of insanity.”
