It’s his first for Verve Records…
15 · 02 · 2022
Kurt Vile has laid out plans for new album ‘(watch my moves)’.
The incoming album is his first for new home Verve Records, and was recorded in a studio beloved of country outlaw types such as Waylon Jennings.
Out on April 15th, ‘(watch my moves)’ features 15 tracks, comprising of 14 brand new songs and a rendering of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Wages Of Sin’.
“It’s about songwriting. It’s about lyrics. It’s about being the master of all domains in the music,” he comments in a press note. “I’m always thinking about catchy music, even though it’s fried, or sizzled, out. It’s my own version of a classic thing—it’s moving forward and backward at the same time.”
New song ‘Like Exploding Stones’ leads the way, and it’s vintage Kurt Vile, a gorgeous piece of countrified reflection. Lit by sepia tones, ‘Like Exploding Stones’ comes equipped with a video featuring Sun Ra Arkestra’s James Stewart.
Tune in now.
