Kevin Morby Sundowner

Kevin Morby has announced his new album “Sundowner” with a video for a new song called “Campfire.” The album is due out October 16th via Dead Oceans Records. Check out the video for “Campfire,” which features Morby’s partner Katie Crutchfield (aka Waxahatchee), below.

Morby began working on Sundowner at home, using mostly a four-track Tascam 424 recorder. He then headed to Texas’ Sonic Ranch to record the album with producer Brad Cook. “I wrote the entire album wearing headphones, hunched over the 424, letting my voice and guitar pass through the machine, getting lost in the warmth of the tape as if another version of myself was living on the inside, singing back at me,” Morby said in a statement. “I was mesmerized by the magic of the four track not only as a recording device, but also an instrument, and considered it my song writing partner throughout the whole process.”

“In the winter of 2017 I moved back to my hometown of Kansas City from Los Angeles. The move was sudden and unforeseen, just as I was tying a bow on the writing process for what would become my 2019 album, Oh My God. I bought a Four Track Tascam model 424 off of an old friend to help me get to the finish line, but much to my surprise and excitement, this new piece of equipment in my all-but-bare home didn’t help complete one album but rather inspire another: Sundowner. The new collection of songs came quickly and effortlessly as I did my best not to resist or refine the songs, but instead let them take shape all on their own.”

Along with the album, Kevin Morby has announced a “virtual tour” on the Noon Chorus platform. Starting on September 10th, Morby will perform one album from his discography every Thursday, working in chronological order until he gets to an October 15th performance of Sundowner. Morby was set to tour the United States this spring in support of his 2019 LP Oh My God before the coronavirus pandemic effectively shut down the touring industry.
