The fingerpicking wizard William Tyler is going to release his new album Modern Country, a concept record about the disappearance of any authentic form of American culture, in a few weeks. Tyler has released a lovely trailer and the great early track “Gone Clear,” and those have both been enough to get us excited. And now here’s further cause to be amped about this one: “Kingdom Of Jones,” a beautiful all-acoustic instrumental that harkens back to Tyler’s older work. Listen to it below.
Modern Country is out 6/3 (and 6/10 in Europe) on Merge.
