Kurt Vile has announced that he will be releasing a new album Bottle It In on vinyl on October 12th. The album is Vile’s 7th solo studio album and follows Vile’s critically loved duet album with Courtney Barnett, Lotta Sea Lice.
As per the PR: “Using past albums as points of departure, Bottle It In heads off in new directions, pushing at the edges of the map into unexplored territory: Here be monster jams. These songs show an artist who is still evolving and growing: a songwriter who, like his hero John Prine, can make you laugh and break your heart, often in the same line, as well as a vocalist who essentially rewrites those songs whenever he sings them in his wise, laconic jive-talkin’ drawl. He revels in the minutiae of the music— not simply incorporating new instruments but emphasizing how they interact with his guitar and voice, how the glockenspiel evokes cirrocumulus clouds on “Hysteria,” how Kim Gordon’s “acoustic guitar distortion” (her term) engulfs everything at the end of “Mutinies,” how the banjo curls around his guitar lines and backing vocals from Lucius to lend a high-lonesome aura to “Come Again.””
The release of Bottle It In precedes an extensive tour across the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia over the next several months.
Bottle It In is available to pre-order now.
