Kevin Morby will release his seventh album, This is A Photograph, on May 13 via Dead Oceans. (Preorder on gold nugget colored vinyl.) He recorded once again with frequent collaborator Sam Cohen and drummer Nick Kinsey, along with touring band regulars Cochemea Gastelum (saxophone), Jared Samuel (organ), Alecia Chakour (vocals, tambourine) and Eric Johnson (banjo). Also making appearances on the record: Makaya McCraven (drums), Cassandra Jenkins (vocals), Josh Jaeger (drums, percussion), Brandee Younger (harp), and Tim Heidecker and Alia Shawkat show up on “Rock Bottom.”

The first released track from This is a Photograph is its title track, inspired by a picture of his father when he was young that Kevin found after his dad had suffered a health scare. "It’s about the battle every family faces, that of chasing the clock, to live our lives and hold onto one another for as long as possible," says Kevin. "That, and, the dreams that come with being a young family in America and where those dreams eventually end up." Urgent and propulsive, "This is a Photograph" is very Kevin Morby but not quite like anything he's done before. You can watch the video below.

Preorder This is a Photograph on gold nugget colored vinyl, and pick up other Kevin Morby fantastic solo debut, Harlem River, in the BV Shop.

Kevin has also announced a world tour, that includes North American dates in the fall with Cassandra Jenkins and Coco. Check out his full tour schedule below.
