Pedro the Lion releases new album, Havasu

Pedro the Lion new album Havasu

Pedro the Lion has surprise released a new album. Today, David Bazan and company release Havasu, their first new album in three years, via Polyvinyl. It’s a sequel of sorts to the group’s last album Phoenix, and is the second in a series of albums planned that are named for places where David Bazan has lived. For inspiration, he even traveled to the Arizona town over the past few years. “An intersection I hadn’t remembered for 30 years would trigger a flood of hidden memories,” he says in a press release. “I was there to soak in it as much as possible.”

At 2 p.m. today, NPR will host a Listening Party for the album, featuring a conversation between Bazan and writer and poet (and Treble album) Hanif Abdurraqib. Hear the album below and check out Pedro the Lion’s upcoming tour dates.
