Kevin Morby has shared "Aboard My Train" from his forthcoming album, City Music. "Doing what I do, people are constantly coming in and out of your life," says Morby. "The moment you think you'll never see someone again, they reappear and that's what this song is about starting with my first best friend, Pablo, who lived on my street in Tulsa, and was my first memory of having a best friend."

The tale is set to a winning, VU-style two-chord rocker that suits Morby's voice well. You can check it out via its video which Morby directed. "I wanted to make a video at home, something sort of lo-fi," Kevin says of the video which features him writing the names of important people in his life. "I kind of missed the challenge of having to come up with something creative with little to no money." Watch that below.

City Music is out June 16 via Dead Oceans. As mentioned, Kevin Morby will be on tour starting next month, and plays NYC's Bowery Ballroom on May 24 with John Andrews and the Yawns (tickets). Up-to-date tour dates are listed below.
