kakiking glow Kaki King announces new album: Glow

Atlanta-based singer-songwriter Kaki King will release an instrumental album, Glow, on October 9th via Velour Music Group. The follow-up to 2010’s Junior was produced by D. James Goodwin (Devo, The Bravery) and long-time King bandmate/live sound engineer Dan Brantigan at Goodwin’s Isokon studio in Woodstock, NY.

A press release describes the effort as something an “artistic reboot for King,” who experienced an “existential crisis” following the release of Junior. While past efforts have featured rare instruments and an emphasis on heavy percussion, this latest album is a return to King’s guitar roots.

“This is a guitar record,” King said. “This is the sound of a person playing guitar. Whatever additions we made, the fundamental of this record is still one person playing a guitar. That’s who I am.”

Below, you can watch a performance of the album track “Bowen Island” from July’s Festival delle Colline in Italy.

In support of the album, King will embark on a massive North American tour starting in October, and you can check out the full schedule below.
