Kurt Vile Announces New Album b’lieve i’m goin down…

It can’t be easy to top an album as expansively beautiful as 2013’s Wakin On A Pretty Daze, but Kurt Vile seems like he’s ready for it. In recent weeks, Vile has shared some intriguing info about his next album: It includes his “best song ever” and some of the songs are “sort of dark.” And now Vile has announced the album’s title — it’s the idiosyncratically capitalized b’lieve i’m goin down… — and a massive fall tour that’ll take him across North America and Europe with Waxahatchee. He hasn’t given us a release date, but the tour starts off early in October, so it probably makes sense to expect the album sometime around then. Check out the tour dates below after watching this album teaser.
