Stream Mikal Cronin MCIII

Mikal Cronin will release his third full-length album MCIII a week from today, and we’ve already heard the first two singles, “Made My Mind Up” and “ii) Gold.” MCIII was written over the course of 2014, a year that Cronin spent touring on the tail-end of his break-out Merge debut MCII. On the new album, there is an audible shift when the upbeat tracks on Side A transition into Side B, which Merge has referred to as being a miniature concept record. Cronin claims it’s a retelling of his “coming of age” narrative: “It’s about a pivotal moment in my life that changed things, just within a couple of months… It was a shifting point that sent me on the path to doing what I’m doing right now.” Listen to MCIII in full over at iTunes.

MCIII is out 5/5 via Merge Records.
