Wavves’ Nathan Williams has dished out more details concerning his new album. It now has a title, Afraid of Heights, and a tracklist spanning 13 tracks. There’s also album artwork (as you can see above), and this press blurb by Williams discussing the album’s overall theme (via Pitchfork):

“The general theme of the record is depression and anxiety, being death-obsessed and paranoid of impending doom. I feel like the narration is almost schizophrenic if you listen front to back; every word is important, even the constant contradictions and lack of self-worth. That’s all a part of this record-questioning everything not because I’m curious, but because I’m paranoid.”

Williams has also shared another track from the album, in the form of the mid-tempo rocker “Demon to Lean On”, which is streaming below. It’s preceded on the tracklist by the ferociously fuzzy album opener, “Sail to the Sun”.

Another track, “Hippies Is Punks”, was originally released as part of Adult Swim’s Singles Program. It has since been re-recorded with Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Lewis and will appear on the album as an iTunes bonus track.

And if all that weren’t enough, Wavves has announced tour dates alongside the equally loud FIDLAR. You can find those dates listed out below the stream.

Afraid of Heights arrives March 26th through Mom + Pop Records.
