Kurt Vile today announced the upcoming release of his fifth studio album, Wakin On A Pretty Daze. It will be Vile’s first double album and clock in at about 70 minutes long. The former War on Drugs member also shared a new track from the release: the almost identically-titled “Wakin On A Pretty Day.”
Kurt Vile, as with his 2011 breakthrough album, Smoke Ring for My Halo, gives us a taste here of his incredibly smooth guitar work and relaxing lyrics. The nearly ten-minute-long song breezes by effortlessly, making it prime for repeat listening. The video that accompanies the track features Philadelphia street artist Steve Powers as he paints an abandoned building with Kurt’s name and the album title shot as a time lapse.
Kurt Vile’s Wakin On A Pretty Daze comes out April 9th via Matador.
