Through a colorful, cryptic teaser video, Mississippi songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Dent May let us know that he plans to release Warm Blanket, the follow-up to 2012’s Do Things, on August 27th via Paw Tracks. Warm Blanket is Dent’s most ambitious undertaking yet.
Recorded in solitude in a supposedly haunted house by the bay in St. Augustine, Florida, Warm Blanket is a sonic journey of existential pop, psychedelic funk and melancholy soul. Dent plays almost all the instruments on the album, and his songwriting features more depth and dynamism than previous releases.
Check out the teaser video for yourself, where you’ll see Dent playing piano, sipping a cocktail and applying chapstick, amongst other seemingly unrelated images. We can’t really make sense of it, but needless to say, we can’t wait to hear Warm Blanket.
