Texas musician Robert Ellis will release his eponymous fourth album on June 3 via New West. First single "Drivin'" shows off Ellis' accomplished guitar-work (the pedal steel here is especially sublime) and deft songwriting abilities. Stream it via NPR, below.

Robert will be on tour later this year with Tom Brosseau, including two NYC-area shows: June 20 at Garcia's at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, and June 22 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for both the Garcia's and Bowery Ballroom go on sale Friday (4/1) at noon, and Bowery is on AmEx presale currently. All dates are listed, along with the new album's artwork, tracklist and that song stream, below.
