Country crooner/beatmaker Daughn Gibson has signed to Sub Pop, who will be releasing his sophomore full-length album in 2013. He released a great debut album earlier this year, called All Hell, and more recently put out a new 7". In celebration of his signing, Gibson sampled two of his new labelmates-- Shabazz Palaces and Tiny Vipers-- on a new track called "Reach Into The Fire." Take a listen to it at the bottom of this post.
As mentioned, Daughn visits Chicago tonight (8/22) with his tourmates Yeasayer for a show at the Vic (tickets). He'll be on the road supporting Yeasayer for the remainder of August, and then will kick off a US headlining run in September. That run includes a Chicago show at the Empty Bottle on October 29. Tickets go on sale this Friday (8/24) at 10AM CST.
