Last month, prolific songwriter Alex Giannascoli shared two new songs from his forthcoming record, Rocket, which is set to drop on May 19th via Domino. Now, in addition to a new song, “Proud”, the artist has revealed a new name. Giannascoli will be billing himself as (Sandy) Alex G from here on out, so adjust your rolodex accordingly.

“Proud” is a rollicking bit of lo-fi country-rock that shambles its way to a stunning, synth-assisted climax. The chorus is pure country, too: “If i sink,” Giannascoli sings on the amiable chorus, “I don’t wanna be the one to leave my baby out with no bottle to drink.” Listen to it above.

(Sandy) Alex G has also announced a massive North American summer tour with Japanese Breakfast and Cende, though a few early dates will bring in Pinegrove as the opener. A one-off show in Brooklyn in mid-May features true Blue in support.
