Dan Deacon announces new LP & tour, shares “Sat by a Tree” video starring Aparna Nancherla

dan deacon

Dan Deacon is back and will release Mystic Familiar, his first album in nearly five years, on January 31 via Domino. The first single is “Sat by a Tree,” which is blissed out and contemplative but still very much a hyperactive Dan Deacon song. The bugged-out video was directed by Daren Rabinovitch of film and animation studio Encyclopedia Pictura and stars comedian/actor Aparna Nancherla. It’s definitely worth watching, unless you have an issue with creepy crawly things, then maybe not. Check that out, along with a making-of short, below.

You can catch Dan on tour soon, including a Southeast run in November, and a just-announced 2020 tour that runs through late winter and spring. There’s a NYC show at Brooklyn Steel on May 1Tickets for Brooklyn Steel — and all dates of the tour — go on sale Friday, November 1 at 10 AM local, with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (10/30) at 10 AM.

All dates are listed, along with Mystic Familiar‘s cover art and tracklist, below
