Shaggy haired songwriter Kurt Vile has titled the follow-up to his rather excellent 2011 album, Smoke Ring for My Halo. As Philadelphia radio station XPN reports, Violators guitarist Jesse Trbovich posted a mysterious photo (see above) featuring street art by Steve Powers, which will appear at the intersection of Front and Master in the City of Love.
Trbovich indicated that Wakin on a Pretty Daze is the album’s title through Facebook, which we also confirmed through Matador Records. No telling what the other pieces entail — “Alert/Adrift”, “Phone Ringing Off the Shelf”, “Wise Crack”, etc. — though perhaps they’re songs that will make up what Vile’s been calling the band’s “Tusk.”
Matador also told us that the mural will be incorporated into the album’s artwork.
