Even though Jessy Lanza’s debut album Pull My Hair Back was the opposite of something that necessitates redemption, we’re enthusiastically giving in to her call for a “second chance.” And we’ll have months to adequately prepare, as Lanza’s follow-up album, Oh No, will hit the proverbial shelves on May 13, courtesy of one of TMT’s favorite labels, Hyperdub.

According to the press release, Lanza experiences perpetual “nervousness,” which has mutated as her and her music rightfully received more attention. Oh No is both an acknowledgement and an implicit rejection of the nerves, as her affinity for soothing (and toxic-air-reducing) shrubbery is apparent on the album cover posted down below, while her motivations for creating the album (and perhaps music in general) are summarized by the following statement: “I want to make people feel good and I want to make myself feel good.”

Junior Boys — whose Jeremy Greenspan returned with production help — will be touring with Lanza in March. Check out the full dates after this sly music video:
