Bill Callahan Announces New Live Album ‘Resuscitate!’

    Bill Callahan has announced a new live album, Resuscitate!, which is due out July 26 via Drag City. It captures Callahan’s performance at Chicago’s Thalia Hall on March 22, 2022, featuring Matt Kinsey on guitar, Dustin Laurenzi on alto sax, and Jim White on drums, as well as special guests Nathaniel Ballinger on piano, Pascal Kerong’A on vocals, Nick Mazzarella on alto sax, Joshua Abrams on guembri, and Lisa Alvarado on harmonium.

    Callahan released his most recent album, YTI⅃AƎЯ, in October 2022. In a press release, he explained:

    This is a live album that was taken from the tour for YTI⅃AƎЯ. Songs tend to mutate after they’ve been recorded. These songs were mutating faster than usual. Like whatever happened to Bruce Banner in the lab — I knew these songs were about to get superpowers. As far as I was concerned, this change needed to be documented. The best thing about documenting something is that it gives the creator permission to move on should they wish to move on. I usually prefer to move on.

    These songs were recorded in Chicago, America’s heart. And at one of the best clubs in the country — I try to only work with venues that are not entangled with Live Nation/Ticketmaster. Thalia Hall, baby. Stay free.
