Popular Manipulations is The Districts third full length release produced by John Congleton (Angel Olsen, Modest Mouse).

Tracklist:
01. If Before I Wake
02. Violet
03. Ordinary Day
04. Salt
05. Why Would I Wanna Be
06. Point
07. Airplane

A number of songs deal with isolation, loneliness, and dependency — themes that are reflected in the album title itself. “It hints at how people use each other, for good or bad, and the personal ways you manipulate yourself and other people in day-to-day interactions,” lead singer Rob Grote noted in a press statement.
