Bruce Hornsby has announced a new album, 'Flicted, which is the final installment of his trilogy that began with 2019's Absolute Zero and 2020's Non-Secure Connection, albums that connected Hornsby with hipper, younger collaborators like Bon Iver, The Shins' James Mercer, Jamila Woods, and more. 'Flicted continues that trend; its first single is "Sidelines," a duet with Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig that was co-written by Blake Mills who also plays guitar on the album. Longtime Vampire Weekend collaborator Ariel Rechtshaid produced. Ezra is a good fit for Hornsby, as Vampire Weekend already kind of make the most fashionable possible version of boomer-era cheese, and he fits right in on this song. Listen below.

The album also includes a song with Danielle Haim and one with Bon Iver collaborators Ethan Gruska and Rob Moose. Full tracklist below as well. 'Flicted drops May 27 via Zappo Productions/Thirty Tigers.
