Kevin Morby shares first single and video from new album, expands tour (updated dates)

by Bill Pearis

Kevin Morby

Kevin Morby has released the first single from his upcoming third album, Singing Saw. Punctuated with Spanish horns, a choir and a killer bassline, “I Have Been To The Mountain” is a great first taste of the LP. (Lyrically, it’s about Eric Garner who died tragically after being put in a police chokehold.) The video, directed by Phillip Lopez and starring dancer Nathan Mitchell, posits that death may not be the end. It’s sad and fanciful all at once. Watch that below.

Morby has expanded his 2016 tour, adding many new dates, including a run with Jaye Bartell. That leg includes a stop in NYC at Rough Trade on June 22. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (2/12) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (2/10) at noon.

Kevin will also be in NYC this weekend, taking part in the Planned Parenthood benefit Valentine’s Day show at Music Hall of Williamsburg that also features Mac DeMarco, Mark Eitzel, Boss Hog, Delicate Steve and more. Tickets are still available.

He also plays a collaborative show with Eric D Johnson (Fruit Bats) and Sam Cohen this weekend.
