    kurt vile wakin on a pretty daze Kurt Vile details new album Wakin on a Pretty Daze, streams nine minute opener

    After little teases here and there, Kurt Vile has officially announced details for his forthcoming LP, Wakin on a Pretty Daze. The anticipated followup to 2011’s critically-acclaimed Smoke Ring for My Halo will hit stores April 9th via Matador.

    As previously reported, the album was produced by John Agnello, and features guests like Farmer Dave Scher of Beachwood Sparks, Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa, Jennifer Herrema of Royal Trux, and Woods frontman Jeremy Earl.

    In anticipation of its release, Vile has offered up a download and a music video of the nine-minute album opener “Wakin on a Pretty Day”, which finds the Philadelphia songwriter enjoying better days (sort of) and his inner-Dylan. The little speed ups tossed throughout add some subliminal chaos to the mix, too.
