As far as songwriters go, Bill Callahan of Smog is one of those artists that continues to offer up shimmering examples of artistry and honesty. Now with a new album Gold Record announced for release in September, Callahan is ready to up the ante on how to promote it. The follow-up to last year’s Shepherd In A Sheepskin Vest will come at us quicker than most releases.
Callahan is ready to release a new song every Monday leading up to the album’s release. With the album about ten weeks out, that means that fans will hear much of it before it even comes out. While he revisits the Smog track “Let’s Move To The Country” the bulk of the release is first takes recorded while practicing for his tour last year.
The singles begin dropping Monday June 29. The album is ready to preorder physically on vinyl, compact disc or cassette as well as digitally directly from Drag City Records ahead of its September 04 release.
