    On September 23rd, Devendra Banhart returns with his first album in three years, Ape in Pink Marble. Due out via Nonesuch, the Mala follow-up was recorded with longtime collaborators Noah Georgeson and Josiah Steinbrick.

    Among the 13 tracks included are lead single “Middle Names”, released back in June, and this week’s few listen, “Saturday Night”. “You know how to numb the wound, but you don’t know how to heal it,” the freak-folk songwriter addresses his troubled partner in a hushed but pained croon. “Please don’t love me because/ Don’t love me because you’re through hating you.”
