New Daniel Johnston album due in two days!

on March 24, 2010, 12:30pm

There’s all sorts of cool Daniel Johnston news these days. In addition to that potential biopic starring one Philip Seymour Hoffman, the American singer/songwriter is also gearing up for the release of a brand new studio album. In fact, it’s due out in just two days!

Yes, oddly enough, as TwentyFourBit discovered, an online listing is currently advertising the March 26th release of Beam Me Up!, a new 12-track effort that hears Johnston teaming up with BEAM, an 11-piece Dutch orchestra. The album will consist of three previously unreleased songs, “Mask”, “Sarah Drove In Her Car”, and “Last Song”, as well as nine re-recorded numbers, including “Devil Town” and “Beatles”. And awesome enough, Beam Me Up! is already streaming in its entirety here.

In support of the release Johnston and BEAM will embark on a European tour together this spring. Find those dates below, as well as a behind-the-scenes footage of the two music powers.

01. Sarah Drove Around In Her Car
