Ryley Walker announces new album & tour, shares new song

Ryley Walker

The prolific folk singer/guitarist Ryley Walker already released an EP this year, and now he announced a new full length album. It’s called Golden Sings That Have Been Sung, and it’ll be out on August 19 via Dead Oceans. His band for the album features Brian Sulpizio. Ben Boye, Anton Hatwich, Frank Rosaly, Whitney Johnson, LeRoy Bach (who also produced it), Quin Kirchner, and Ryan Jewell. The lead single is “The Halfwit In Me,” which is another dose of his ’60s/’70s-inspired folk revival and seriously skilled guitar playing. Listen below.

Ryley also announced a massive tour, including a NYC show on November 3 at Market Hotel. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/3) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.
