Sam Evian Announces New Album ‘Plunge’, Shares New Single ‘Wild Days’

    Sam Evian – the musician and producer known for his work with Big Thief, Palehound, Blonde Redhead, and Cass McCombs – has announced a new album called Plunge. The follow-up to 2021’s Time to Melt will be released on March 22 through his new imprint Flying Cloud Recordings/Thirty Tigers. The lead single, ‘Wild Days’, arrives today alongside a music video. Check it out below and scroll down for the LP’s cover art, tracklist, and Evian’s upcoming tour dates.

    Plunge was recorded over ten days during the early winter months of 2023. Evian was joined by a group of friends and collaborators that included Liam Kazar, Sean Mullins, El Kempner of Palehound, and Adrianne Lenker of Big Thief. “No one knew the songs or what the plan was. We kept it loose and fun,” he said in a press release. “This was the spirit of the sessions. No headphones, no playback, minimal overdubs, or bleed. Fast and loose.”

    “I spend so much time trying to make perfect recordings for everyone else,” Evian added. “So it was a slight act of resistance to make something wild and kind of fucked up for myself.”
