"Puppeteer" lands after last month's lead single "Quicksand", and arrives with a bizarre lyric video created by Steve Smith.

Abracadabra will follow on from Jerry Paper's 2018 album Like A Baby.

It'll include a variety of characters, including "someone with a victim complex ("Cholla"); an alien captive surveilled by a mysterious presence ("Puppeteer"), and a buff man whose life is thrown into shambles when he is caught smoking methamphetamine at his child’s birthday party ("Body Builder on the Shore")."

Unlike his previous albums, Jerry Paper, aka Lucas Nathan, decided to approach Abracadabra alone rather than with collaborators.

"Puppeteer" is out now. Jerry Paper's Abracadabra album lands via Stones Throw on 15 May, and is available to pre-order now.
