Kevin Morby

Kansas City based musician Kevin Morby has announced his new album ‘Sundowner’ will be released on 16th October via Dead Oceans. Lead single ‘Campfire’ is available now. The video, shot at Castle Rock in Kansas, isdirected by Johnny Eastlund & Dylan Isbell and features Morby with his partner, Katie Crutchfield (Waxahatchee).

Speaking about the album, Morby said:

“I wrote the entire album wearing headphones, hunched over the 424, letting my voice and guitar pass through the machine, getting lost in the warmth of the tape as if another version of myself was living on the inside, singing back at me. I was mesmerised by the magic of the four track not only as a recording device, but also an instrument, and considered it my songwriting partner throughout the whole process.

It is a depiction of isolation. Of the past. Of an uncertain future. Of provisions. Of an omen. Of a dead deer. Of an icon. Of a Los Angeles themed hotel in rural Kansas. Of billowing campfires, a mermaid and a highway lined in rabbit fur. It is a depiction of the nervous feeling that comes with the sky’s proud announcement that another day will be soon coming to a close as the pink light recedes and the street lamps and house lights suddenly click on.”

Morby will also take part in a virtual tour via Noon Chorus. Performances will be every Thursday, starting on September 10th. He’ll perform his complete discography in chronological order, culminating in a performance of Sundowner the day before the album’s release.
