As has been circulating the internet, Kurt Vile will be releasing his fifth LP and folllow-up to 2011’s Smoke Ring For My Halo on April 9th via Matador. The album is titled Wakin on a Pretty Daze and will contain 11-songs in total.
To get things started, he is giving away the opening and almost title track “Wakin on a Pretty Day”. The breezy and sprawling 9-minute song has everything you want from Vile to those Tom Petty-esque vocals and a shredding guitar solo to finish it off. Should be another amazing collection of songs from him. You can find the song below along witht the tracklisting and upcoming tour dates.
