The C.I.A.—the band comprising Ty Segall, his wife Denée Segall, and the Cairo Gang’s Emmett Kelly—have announced a new album: Surgery Channel arrives January 20 via In the Red. Today, the group has shared lead single “Impersonator,” along with a music video directed by Joshua Erkman and Denée Segall. In the clip, Denée Segall’s face morphs as other images—of Miss Piggy, Pinhead from Hellraiser, Gollum, Chucky, and more—are projected on top of it. Check it out below, and scroll down for the LP artwork and tracklist.
The C.I.A. released their self-titled debut album in 2018. The trio wrote Surgery Channel last year, and recorded it with Mike Kriebel at Ty Segall’s own Harmonizer Studios. Ty Segall issued his most recent solo LP, “Hello, Hi”, earlier this year.
