LISTEN: The Walkmen’s Peter Matthew Bauer Shares New Track from Solo Debut, Announces Tour Dates

The Walkmen founder Peter Matthew Bauer has revealed an autobiographical single off his debut solo album Liberation! Drawing inspiration from his teenage spiritual upbringing, "I Was Born in an Ashram" features cultish chanting and trills of bells that invite you into Bauer's strange yet fascinating world. 

 

The album itself is a soundtrack to one man's journey, spiritual and otherwise. Liberation!, while it may touch on darker contemplations, is ultimately a joyous collection of folk-rock infused with classic rock sounds. It's an easy and catchy listen and a dreamy album for those hot summer days. 

 

Liberation! drops June 24 and you can pre-order it via Mexican Summer. Listen to "I Was Born in an Ashram" below!
