Kurt Vile is in the process of recording his sixth album and follow-up to 2013’s Wakin on a Pretty Daze. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Vile announced that the new album is titled All Over the Place, and it’s described in the article as his darkest album yet.
“It’s definitely got that night vibe,” Vile says in the Rolling Stone interview. “KV’s Night Life — it’s my sequel to Donald Fagen’s The Nightfly.”
The album also features Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa and sound artist Farmer Dave Scher — both of whom played on Wakin on a Pretty Daze — and will feature production work from Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith’s either/or). As of right now, the album doesn’t have a release date, though Vile expects it to be out in the fall. Matador tweeted the interview, so it’s probably safe to say they’re the label releasing the album.
Kurt Vile’s former bandmates in The War on Drugs have also announced that they’re working on a new album.
