Listen to the new single ‘Please Won’t Please’ below.

Roberto Carlos Lange, AKA Helado Negro, will release his sixth studio album, This Is How You Smile, early next year on RVNG Intl.

Reflecting on his personal and family life, as well as memories of his childhood, Lange describes the album as “the soundtrack of a person approaching you, slowly, for 40 minutes.”

The album follows Lange’s 2016 album Private Energy – which was re-released in 2017 as Private Energy (Expanded) – as well as the fourth installment of his Island Universe Story EP series, which was released earlier this year.

A portion of the proceeds from the album will be donated to United We Dream, an organization supporting immigrant rights, under Come! Mend!, an initiative bridging RVNG’s work and interest supporting non-profit organizations and charities.

This Is How You Smile arrives on March 8, 2019, via RVNG Intl. The album is available to pre-order digitally, on CD and on limited edition vinyl now. Check out the album artwork and tracklist below.

Lange will tour in support of the album throughout Winter and Spring, including some dates supporting Beirut – see below for a full list of tour dates.
