take a listen to Owen’s new single “Bad Blood” (song stream)
Owen (aka Mike Kinsella) has announced that he’ll release the follow-up to 2011’s Ghost Town, titled ‘L’Ami du Peuple’, on July 2 via Polyvinyl Records. The album was produced by Neil Strauch (Iron & Wine, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Andrew Bird, Joan of Arc), who also worked on Ghost Town, and will serve as Kinsella’s seventh full-length under the moniker. You can take a listen to the LP’s very full-band-sounding lead single “Bad Blood” at the bottom of this post. ‘L’Ami du Peuple’s tracklisting can also be found below.
As discussed, Kinsella also has a new band called Their / They’re / There with Evan Thomas Weiss (of Into It. Over It.) and Matthew Frank (of Loose Lips Sink Ships). They’ll welcome their debut, self-titled EP on April 20 (Record Store Day) via Polyvinyl. You’ve already heard the album’s lead single “Concession Speech Writer,” and can now check out another track called “Their / They’re / Therapy” at the bottom of this post. Catch T / T / T at Reckless Records (Wicker Park) on Record Store Day, and at the Beat Kitchen on May 11 (tickets).
