Kevin Morby’s previous releases Harlem River and Still Life were among our favourites and he has recently signed to Dead Oceans who will release his new long player next year. In the meantime, in support of his autumn touring schedule (UK dates below), they’ve announced a 7″ slated for release this September.

Kevin Morby, former bassist for the band Woods, has announced Dead Oceans as his new label home. Though the indie folk artistpromises a full-length debut on the label sometime next year, he’s celebrating the signing now with the release of a new 7-inch single, ‘Moonshiner’ and ‘Bridge to Gaia’. ‘Moonshiner’ is a shambling folk number, relying on some sturdy piano work to keep itself upright and a set of steady, strumming strings to keep it on pace.

UK Dates:
Mon. Sept. 7 – Bristol @ The Louisiana
Tue. Sept. 8 – York @ The Fulford Arms
Wed. Sept. 9 – Leeds @ Brudenell Social Club, Games Room
Thu. Sept. 10 – Glasgow @ Broadcast
Fri. Sept. 11 – London @ O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire
Sat. Sept. 12 – Manchester @ Albert Hall

Moonshiner and Bridge To Gaia are two previously unreleased gems, and the former which we have streaming for you, is inspired and influenced by one of Morby’s favourite contemporary books .
