Kurt Vile Announces New Album Title
The followup to Kurt Vile’s 2013 album, Wakin’ on a Pretty Daze, will be titled All Over the Place, according to an interview with the Philly indie rocker in Rolling Stone.
Living up to the album’s title, Vile has recorded songs everywhere from Brooklyn and Southern California to Georgia and, of course Philadelphia.
“I’ve developed this routine at home. I wait for the kids to go to bed, then my wife falls asleep. Then it’s dark and quiet enough for me to work on songs. I just keep going later and later, until sunrise,” he tells Rolling Stone. “I wanted to get back into the habit of writing a sad song on my couch, with nobody waiting on me. I really wanted it to sound like it’s on my couch — not in a lo-fi way, just more unguarded and vulnerable.”
Some of his collaborators on All Over the Place include Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa, sound artist Farmer Dave Scher, and producer Rob Scnapf. So far, there is no formal release date, but he says he hopes to release the record in the fall.
