Alex G announces new album Rocket out 19th May
2nd March 2017
Alex G is pleased to announce his new album, Rocket, is set for a 19th May release via Domino.
Rocket is the Philadelphia-based artist’s eighth full-length release—an assured statement that follows a slate of humble masterpieces, many of them self-recorded and self-released, stretching from 2010’s RACE to his 2015 Domino debut, Beach Music. Rocket’s sessions began shortly after Beach Music’s ended, with Alex tracking songs at home, by himself and with friends, in the gaps between a hectic 2015 and 2016 touring schedule. Rocket was mixed by Jacob Portrait (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Bass Drum of Death), who also lent his hand to Beach Music, giving the album a fine-tuning that retains the homespun personality of earlier efforts.
Alex G will be playing a special album release show in Brooklyn, New York, on Thursday 18th May and will be returning to the UK for further dates later in the year.
Stay tuned for more tour dates to be announced soon.
Rocket is available to pre-order now on ltd. red translucent vinyl, ltd. red translucent cassette (Domino Mart exclusive), ltd. random colorway cassette (Bandcamp exclusive), CD, and digital download.
