Following the release of acclaimed singles ‘One Trick Ponies’, ‘Loading Zones’ and the epic 10-minute float of ‘Bassackwards’, Kurt Vile today releases his eclectic and electrifying new album Bottle It In.
Kurt Vile recorded Bottle It In at various studios around the country over two very busy years, during sessions that usually punctuated the ends of long tours or family road trips. Every song becomes a journey unto itself, taking unexpected detours, circuitous melodic avenues, or open-highway solos.
Using past albums as points of departure, Bottle It In heads off in new directions, pushing at the edges of the map into unexplored territory. These songs show an artist who is still evolving and growing: a songwriter who can make you laugh and break your heart, often in the same line, as well as a vocalist who essentially rewrites those songs whenever he sings them in his wise, laconic jive-talkin’ drawl.
These journeys took Vile more than two years to navigate, during which time he toured behind his breakout 2015 album b’lieve I’m goin’ down, recorded a duet album with Courtney Barnett, opened for Neil Young in front of 90,000 people in Quebec, famously became a clue on Jeopardy, hung out with friends, took vacations with his wife and daughters.
Hitting the road in Australia in April 2019 with support from RVG, Kurt Vile and the Violators will perform shows in Sydney, Wollongong, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Bendigo Autumn Music and Byron Bay Bluesfest. Full tour info below!
