Mountain Man announce first album in 8 years, share 3 songs
Mountain Man returned last year to play live and release the new song "Love Hurts," and now the group have announced their first album since their 2010 debut, Magic Ship, due September 21 via Nonesuch. In the eight years since Mountain Man's last album, Amelia Randall Meath has gotten more famous as the singer of Sylvan Esso and Molly Erin Sarle and Alexandra Sauser-Monnig pursued solo careers, but hearing them sing together again makes it feel just like the old days. The album announcement is accompanied by streams of three songs from the album, the a cappella opener "Window," the gentle folk-pop of "Rang Tang Ring Toon," and the a cappella, pre-Beatles pop of "Stella." Listen to those below.
In addition to the album's 11 originals, it includes three covers: Ted Lucas' "Baby Where You Are," Michael Hurley's "Blue Mountain," and the traditional hymn "Bright Morning Stars." You can view the full tracklist below.
