LISTEN: Kurt Vile Has Us “Wakin On A Pretty Day” With New Track And Album Details


Last time we checked in with Kurt Vile, he was watching Twin Peaks and touring in support of his 2011 album, Smoke Ring For My Halo (which, of course, we absolutely adored). Two years later, Vile and his signature long tresses are back with the opening track from his upcoming album, Wakin on a Pretty Daze, due out on April 9th via Matador.


The new track, "Wakin on a Pretty Day" (not to be confused with the almost identical album title), comes in at right around nine minutes, but every minute is worth your ears' time. It's an expansive nine minutes of pure, sunny bliss and good feelings. Click the link below to listen to "Wakin On A Pretty Day" and the link doubles as a download too, so get it while it's fresh!

While you're at it, check out the details for the rest of Waking on a Pretty Daze and see when he's playing live at a venue near you!
