American musician, singer-songwriter and legend Bill Callahan has announced the release of a new album. Gold Record will be out on September 4th via Drag City. It follows 2019’s Shepherd in A Sheepskin. According to the press release, The abiding humanity of latter-day Callahan is highlighted by dark plumes of caustic wit upending standards of our everyday life and the songs that celebrate it: the job, the wife, the TV, the neighbors. Bill slips easily into his characters, whether they’re easy people or not – and the cross-hatch of their light and shadow is unpredictably entertaining in the manner that belongs only one singer in this whole wide world.
We already shared “Pigeons”, “35” and “Another Song”; “Protest Song” is a new excerpt. Listen below.
