Looks like we'll have a new album later this year

How Kurt Vile Rediscovered the Sound of His Couch for Darkest LP Yet | Rolling Stone

I still listen to Wakin on a Pretty Daze. Such a great album.

September 25th

A press release for the album features this statement from Kim Gordon:

Kurt does his own myth-making; a boy/man with an old soul voice in the age of digital everything becoming something else, which is why this focused, brilliantly clear and seemingly candid record is a breath of fresh air. Recorded and mixed in a number of locations, including Los Angeles and Joshua Tree, b'lieve i'm goin down... is a handshake across the country, east to west coast, thru the dustbowl history ("valley of ashes") of woody honest strait forward talk guthrie, and a cali canyon dead still nite floating in a nearly waterless landscape. The record is all air, weightless, bodyless, but grounded in convincing authenticity, in the best version of singer songwriter upcycling.

Bonus tracks "b'lieve i'm goin down" and "bad omens (no faders)" are available with iTunes and Amazon pre-orders only, while the deluxe triple-LP version features several other bonus tracks.

b'lieve i'm goin down...:

01 Pretty Pimpin
02 I'm an Outlaw
03 Dust Bunnies
04 That's Life, tho (almost hate to say)
05 Wheelhouse
06 Life Like This
07 All in a Daze Work
08 Lost My Head there
09 Stand Inside
10 Bad Omens
11 Kidding Around
12 Wild Imagination

Deluxe 3 LP Edition: believe I'm goin (deep) down...
13 Believe I'm Goin down
14 Less Talk (More Walkin Away) *
15 Nicotine Blues *
16 Bad Omens (No Faders) *
17 No Stranger to the Ball Bust *
18 Sax Omens (J Turbo) *

* deluxe 3xLP bonus tracks

On first listen that track's a little too polished for my liking but I still dig it. Cannot wait for the album.

I just pre-ordered the album on iTunes because I'm a sucker for bonus tracks. At least I get an instant download of Pretty Pimpin.

I'm tempted to do the same. Retailer, or medium, specific bonus tracks is not pimpin or pretty though.

Just finished an immensely underwhelming first listen. Full disclosure: Wakin on a Pretty Daze is the only thing I've fully heard of his, and I absolutely adore it, still listen to it or songs from it on a regular basis, so I was very excited for this album.

The first half is pretty good - That's Life, Tho was the pick of the bunch for me on first listen (probably because it's a Too Hard rewrite), though Pretty Pimpin and Dust Bunnies are both real good and Life Like This is great, sort of like Iggy Pop's Success after an overdose of Stilnox.

Then I went to fix myself another drink and came back for the second half. My god what an absolute drag. The six songs felt like they went on for about three hours. All in a Daze Work is not bad but it does not earn its five-minute run-time and the rest of the tracks all follow a very similar pattern. A massive disappointment. Wild Imagination would be a nice closer if the songs preceding hadn't already ruined things. It went on much longer and I'd have gotten Stockholm syndrome.

Hopefully it grows on me but if nothing else it will make my love for Wakin increase tenfold.
