Lala Lala (aka Lillie West) is releasing a new album, I want the door to open, this Friday via Hardly Art. Now, Lala Lala has shared her fourth single, “Utopia Planet,” which features a spoken word section of West’s grandmother, as well as the saxophone played by Sen Morimoto. Meggie van Zwieten directed the accompanying video. Check it out below.

“’Utopia Planet’ was born because my friend Kara Jackson and I challenged each other to write a song about ‘Utopia’,” West explains in a press release. “I tried to imagine a great expanse, an abundance, an open door. It is an invitation to surrender. I used a recording of my grandmother to take you further into another world.

Previously, Lala Lala shared the album’s first single, “DIVER”, via a video. Then came the album’s second single, “Color of the Pool”, shared via video. This was followed by “Prove It” and Open the door: find your keys and unlock total peace of mind, a new original infomercial for the album that features testimonials from CHAI, Sasami Ashworth, Camilo Medina (Divino Niño), IAN SWEET, and more. I want the door to open features Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie on one song.

Lala Lala also recently remixed Dehd’s “Desire”.

Lala Lala’s latest LP was the one of 2018 Lamb– which was our album of the week. West co-produced the new album with Yoni Wolf of WHY ?. Drummer Nnamdi Ogbonnaya performs on “DIVER” and West co-directed the video for the song with Brielle Brilliant. As well as Gibbard and Ogbonnaya, I want the door to open also features contributions from poet Kara Jackson, OHMME, Adam Schatz from Landlady, Sen Morimoto, Christian Lee Hutson, Kaina Castillo, Meg Duffy (from Hand Habbits), Will Miller, Gia Margaret and Josiah Wolf.
