Peggy Gou Shares New Track ‘Lobster Telephone’

Her debut album 'I Hear You' is out June 7th...

South Korean DJ, producer and artist Peggy Gou has today shared a new single, ‘Lobster Telephone’, lifted from her forthcoming debut album, ‘I Hear You’, out next month on XL Recordings.

Previously Gou had shared the Eastern-inspired, salvific anthem ‘1+1=11’. On ‘Lobster Telephone’, she commands the dancefloor with a retro-stylized piece of technicolour house. The song is Gou’s personal favourite from the album, and is named after the famous Salvador Dali sculpture. It sees her recite a string of surreal lyrics in Korean before making the admission, “I know you don’t understand this / But it doesn’t matter / It’s all the same / We’re all the same.”

Debut album ‘I Hear You’ is a ten-track culmination of years of work for the Korean-born artist. Of the release, Peggy Gou says: “‘I Hear You’ is more than just my debut album. It embodies countless hours of dedication in my journey to create something timeless, and is a testament to the power of listening, to ourselves and to each other.”

Catch Peggy Gou on the road this festival season at Glastonbury, Coachella and Primavera, alongside her biggest headline show to date at London’s Gunnersbury Park on August 17th.
