The pop-leaning Black Bubblegum LP is out on the New York label in July.
Though he's best known as one-third of Black Dice, Copeland's occupied an odd place on the outskirts of the dance world for the past few years, releasing a couple of full-lengths on L.I.E.S. and having his previous DFA material remixed by Anthony Naples and Fhloston Paradigm.
The label likens the new full-length to "Arthur Russell going into the studio with the Ramones." Fittingly, the record sees Copeland ditching the samplers used on previous records for guitars, keyboards and pedals. He says Black Bubblegum is inspired by "…glam holes, glitter dreams, money troubles, apocalypse paranoia, one-hit wonders, manifest destiny, my family's westward migration, body troubles (was passing kidney stones almost the entire time), LGBT disco parties, Jonathan Richman, Missing Foundation, Neil Diamond, New Orleans, poverty, getting pushed out of another Brooklyn neighbourhood... No Beach Boys, no Beatles, no Buddha... More Bad News Bears."
