What’s New? Kurt Vile – Bassackwards

After a period of speculation, Kurt Vile’s latest album has now been confirmed. Bottle It In will be released on October 12th on Matador Records.

Last week’s announcement was also accompanied by the release of new song, ‘Bassackwards’, which follows the first single, ‘Loading Zones’. The nearly-ten-minute ‘Bassackwards’, described as the new album’s “beating heart”, is a gently gradual sojourn through Vile’s eyes. Typically contemplative and simply-but-sweetly observational, his mellow vocals sit over swirling, backmasked guitars. Listen below:
