Kurt Vile has released his new track “Pretty Pimpin” with a new music video which is directed by Daniel Henry. The song is due to appear on Vile’s new upcoming album b’lieve i’m goin down…, which is due to be released on September 25 via Matador. Speaking last month, Vile said that the b’lieve i’m goin down… will include some “ethereal, Appalachian-influenced folk songs” and described the new material as more “unguarded and vulnerable” and having a “night vibe“.
He then continued: “The music drones on and on, but in a freer way. There’s a sort of melancholy in the way the music just sprawls. It wanders. Everybody goes up and down throughout their lives. ‘Smoke Ring…’ was a downer, then ‘Wakin…’ was an upturn. My music has to be funny and sad and happy and loving, it’s gotta have it all. When somebody’s just too dark all the time, it’s just drama. Or if somebody’s too funny? Well, I like being too funny sometimes“. You can watch the video below.
