Jessy Lanza has announced that her new album, Oh No, is ready to drop May 13 via Kode9's Hypberdub imprint. Alongside the album announcement, the Canadian producer shared a stunning video for lead single "It Means I Love You."

The multi-instrumentalist--who doubles as a music teacher when not ensconced in the studio or actively touring--co-wrote and recorded the new album with Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys in their mutual hometown of Hamilton, Ontario.

"It Means I Love You" sees Lanza continuing to carve out her own unique fusion of electro-pop and '90s R&B that constantly tethers on the line between restrained and ecstatic. With the addition of tribal drum patterns, this new track veers away from PBR&B and further into the territories of after hours warehouse-ready ambient techno. The video for the new track offers a psychedelic glimpse through the early morning fog into the producer's world filled with sequins shawls and greenhouses gone wild. Watch the video below:    According to Hyberdub's Twitter, the album artwork also features the sequins and plants imagery.

As Pitchfork reports, the producer explained her newfound appreciation of plants in a statement about the album's recording process: "I became obsessed with surrounding myself with tropical plants. I've been convinced that the air quality in our house is slowly killing us. It might sound crazy but the plants have made a huge difference."

Oh No is Lanza's sophomore full-length album following 2013's Pull My Hair Back. Last year she released the You Never Show Your Love EP.

In the months leading up to Oh No's release, Lanza is joining Junior Boys on the road for an extensive world tour in support of their first new album in five years, Big Black Coat, Thump reports.
