I’m delighted to finally be able to share the title track of my forthcoming album, Captain of None, out on Thrill Jockey on April 6th in Europe and April 7th worldwide. Both Stereogum and The Boiler Room premiered it today, here and here, as well as the French-speaking website The Drone here. You can also access it via the Boiler Room’s Soundcloud and Thrill Jockey’s Youtube page. I truly hope it’ll make you feel like listening to the rest of the album once it’s out! You can preorder the album in its limited edition white vinyl format or the mini-gatefold CD format here – European customers should be able to grab the white vinyl from Boomkat very soon (indeed postage prices from the US to Europe will cost you as much as the vinyl itself – I will post again about the white vinyl’s availability as soon as I get that info).
In other big news, I am very happy to announce that my concert in London will be presented by the Barbican in association with Artic Circle on May 24, 2015 at LSO St Luke’s! I’m honoured to be able to play in such a beautiful venue, presented by such a prestigious institution and Artic Circle who had organised one of my favourite gigs ever, Union Chapel back in 2008! Members of the Barbican can buy their tickets now, and tomorrow at 10 am tickets will be available for purchase to everyone.
I will also be playing in ’s-Hertogenbosch, Holland, at the FAQ festival on April 18th.

So… I’ve had to wait 7 long months to be able to share this news officially: my fifth album Captain of None will be out on April 7th on Thrill Jockey! You can preorder it now and make sure you get the chance to grab one of the 500 white vinyl copies (first time one of my albums is available on coloured vinyl, so I’m excited like a kid!)! All remaining vinyl copies are on black vinyl (and of course all vinyl copies come with digital download), and the album is also available as a 4-panel mini-LP style gatefold CD.
Thank you for your patience! :-)))

I am very excited to be able to share many good news with you today!
First of all I had the pleasure of talking with John Twells of FACT Magazine and I hope you will enjoy reading the interview, which gives you a little preview of what you can expect in the new album, as well as a more general overview of my evolution as a musician over the past couple of years.
But I’m also overjoyed to finally be able to share with you the Captain of None tour dates – it’s taken me months of hard work to book these dates, as well as go through the US visa process, and I’m very grateful to all the people involved in making this happen, including my new home Thrill Jockey for their help. 15 dates in total, 8 in Europe, 7 in the US (including an instore performance at Beacon Sound in Portland), and a few more dates will no doubt be added in the coming weeks. A concert in a beautiful London venue is fully confirmed for late May but I have to wait until next week before I can announce it!
