Mark Kozelek‘s second album with keyboardist Ben Boye and drummer Jim White is out February 7 at Caldo Verde, and here’s another track from it. While there is a certain stream-of-consciousness, diary-entry quality most of Mark’s recent work, “My Brother Loves Seagulls” is a much more songlike and lyrical, even if it doesn’t follow pop structures. Mark tells a tale of a health scare his brother faced against gorgeous, cascading acoustic guitars. It’s a very touching track which premieres in this post and you can listen below.
You can stream Mark Kozelek with Ben Boye and Jim White 2 a week early, and read Gia Margaret’s interview with Mark about the album, on February 1 at Mark’s Sun Kil Moon site.
