Kurt Vile’s out doing press behind his forthcoming fifth studio album, Wakin on a Pretty Daze, due out April 9th via Matador. A few weeks back, he stopped by University of Minnesota’s Radio K to perform two acoustic cuts off the new album, specifically “Never Run Away” and “Wakin On A Pretty Daze”. As expected, he’s hidden behind that lush wall of hair of his, but consider that his “safe place.” To quote the man of the hour, “If you wanna hear me sing, press play.” Do that below.
In related news, there’s going to be a big parade for the heroic songwriter in Philadelphia this Saturday. It’s actually for a new video by acclaimed director Tom Scharpling. So, yeah, expect awesomeness in a few weeks, or if you’re in the area, go and grab some confetti. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
