Damien Jurado has announced a new album, Reggae Film Star, due digitally and on CD June 24 via his own Maraqopa Records, with vinyl arriving July 8 (pre-order). It's his 18th album, and comes 25 years after his debut, and Damien produced it himself alongside multi-instrumentalist Josh Gordon and recording engineer Alex Bush. It features recent singles "Roger" and "What Happened to the Class of '65," as well as the just-released "Taped In Front Of A Live Studio Audience," which finds Damien's warm, subdued indie folk in fine form. Listen to all three and check out the tracklist and upcoming tour dates below.
