Published Feb 11, 2013Back in December, long-haired rocker Kurt Vile announced that he was close to releasing a new album via a Philadelphia mural. As expected from the gigantic text, the new release is called Wakin' on a Pretty Daze, and now we have all the details.
The album clocks in at 69 minutes, and will be released as a double vinyl LP as well as a "mini-gatefold" CD. Pre-orders done on iTunes will also receive the exclusive bonus track "The Ghost of Freddy Roach."
Matador will issue Wakin' on a Pretty Daze on April 9, and you can check out the album's nine-minute opener below.
Vile will also embark on a North American tour, which includes one Canadian stop in Vancouver on May 11.
