Jonathan Wilson – “Charlie Parker”

Jonathan Wilson – “Charlie Parker”

Jonathan Wilson — the Los Angeles-based producer who works with Father John Misty, Angel Olsen, and many others — has announced a new solo album, Eat The Worm, his follow-up to 2020’s Dixie Blur. He teased it a couple months back with the single “Marzipan,” which is included on the tracklist, and today he’s sharing a new single, “Charlie Parker.”

“‘Charlie Parker’ is one of my favorite songs on Eat the Worm. It’s a fantastical and fictitious flight of fancy and fantasy,” Wilson noted in a statement. “It also touches on the ups and downs of my life over the past decade as a touring musician, and more. It’s filled with strings, horns, fuzzy guitars, tubular bells, and a few bebop elements as well, hence the name. In a way, ‘Charlie Parker’ encompasses what the new record is all about: adventure, fidelity and fun.”
