Kevin Morby has announced a new album called This Is a Photograph. The follow-up to 2020’s Sundowner will be released on May 13 via Dead Oceans. Today, Morby has shared the album’s title track, which comes with an accompanying video directed by Chantal Anderson and filmed in a remote California town. Check it out below and scroll down for the LP’s cover artwork and tracklist.
The new album was helmed by Morby’s frequent collaborator Sam Cohen, who also produced 2016’s Singing Saw and 2019’s Oh My God. Collaborators on the record include Cassandra Jenkins, Makaya McCraven, Tim Heidecker, Alia Shawkat, and others.
“Sam Cohen and I wanted to throw everything at the wall with this one. It’s about the battle every family faces, that of chasing the clock, to live our lives and hold onto one another for as long as possible,” Morby explained in a statement. “That, and, the dreams that come with being a young family in America and where those dreams eventually end up.”
