Mark Kozelek has announced that the next Sun Kil Moon album will be called Universal Themes, and will be out June 2nd via Caldo Verde Records. The Benji follow-up was recorded over this year and last in San Francisco and Hoboken, and features percussion from Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth. The album will contain last year’s one-off “The Possum,” and its B-side “Cry Me A River Williamsburg Sleeve Tattoo Blues.” And the tracklist also contains some more Kozelek gems like “With A Sort Of Grace I Walked To The Bathroom To Cry” and “This Is My First Day And I’m Indian And I Work At A Gas Station.” Thankfully, no War On Drugs diss tracks made the cut.
