'CITY MUSIC' out June 16 via Dead Oceans / by Kevin Morby

I couldn't be happier to announce the release of 'City Music,' my fourth album, out June 16 on Dead Oceans. The record is a collection of ten songs, a Germs cover and a Flannery O'Conor passage read by my friend Meg Baird, inspired by and devoted to my metropolitan experience across America. It is a mix-tape, a fever dream, a love letter dedicated to those cities that I cannot get rid of, to those cities that are all inside of me.

The tracklisting is below, and today, from the road, I'm sharing the first song off the album, 'Come To Me Now.' The organ you’re hearing on this song is an old pump organ from the 1800s, I wish I could remember the brand – but I don’t. This was my favorite part of recording this album, playing this thing and pumping air into it with the foot pedals, it had such a presence from the moment I entered the studio. For the first few days I think I thought it was just there for looks, that there was no way it still worked, but sure enough it did. Above it hung a framed photo of the original owner of the studios property who died sometime ago. Apparently his ghost still occupies the premises. 

As I find myself on this new tour, more US and European dates have been added to the calendar and I can't wait to play the new songs for you and see you all on the road.

Thank you for the support, peace and love,
–KM
