Preceded by the world-building visuals for ‘Heaven Surrounds Us Like a Hood’ (directed by Cody Critcheloe), ‘Echolalia’, and ‘God Is a Circle’ (both directed by Jordan Hemingway), the album as a whole is a profound reveal of Yves Tumor’s ever-expanding creative vision, rendered as an intoxicating montage of arresting hooks, uncanny arrangements, and hypnotic songwriting. The album’s meticulous execution is treated to a wide angle production from Noah Goldstein (Frank Ocean, Rosalía, Rihanna, Bon Iver) and buttressed by the visceral mixes of Alan Moulder (Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails). Praise A Lord... offers the widest narrative shot yet, opening with a literal breath and a naked voice that's spoken from a dark nightmarish depth and ending in an almost spiritual church-like celebration; presenting uniquely different songs struck cohesively as an album that begs to be reopened and re-experienced.

Yves Tumor's sound is clear and unmistaking, yet unpredictable, with an identity that is universally charismatic through an androgynous presentation that is sexual, poetic, and honest: an overall presence that will never need to conform to pop standards because it is continuously shifting and redefining what the pop world begins to emulate. The album is rounded out by contributions from Yves’ cadre of indispensable collaborators, including co-production by Yves Rothman (Blondshell, Amaarae), and instrumentation contributions from Chris Greatti (Yungblud, WILLOW), Dylan Wiggins (Rosalía, Vince Staples), Lemar Carter (Solange, Demi Lovato), Rhys Hastings and more.

Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds) marks the formal follow up 2021’s acclaimed The Asymptotical World EP and the preceding full length 2020 album Heaven To A Tortured Mind, both of which yielded a torrent of critical praise, including year-end accolades from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, the FADER, NPR and more.
