Night Shop, the solo project of Justin Sullivan (Babies, Worriers, Kevin Morby's band, Flat Worms), will release his debut album, In The Break, on September 14 via Morby's Mare Records. (Preorder vinyl/digital.) The album features contributions from Meg Duffy (Hand Habits), Jarvis Taveniere (Woods), and Anna St. Louis. Kevin has a few kind words about his frequent bandmate:

For the past twenty years, Justin has been guided by music, moving through the world one song at at time. No matter the project, he has always been seen less as a drummer and more as the yin to the songwriters yang, with his defined ability to help craft a song into exactly what it should be. He is a secret weapon - the thread that runs through many people’s favorite records.

And so it is here that he steps out from behind his kit for the first time and to stage center as Night Shop. When I think about this record, a lyric from “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” comes to mind. It’s the line where Dylan sings, “I’ll know my song, well before I starting singing.” In The Break is the product of someone who has had a lot to say and has waited for the perfect moment to say it.

We've got the premiere of the first single, "The One I Love," a dusty, lightly twangy number that is imbued with a lot of personality and attitude. (It also has a lot in common with Morby's music, so if you like that definitely check this out.) Watch the video for that, and check out album art and tracklist, below.
