Kurt Vile, the bedraggled Philly guitarist, has released details of his new album, Wakin On A Pretty Daze, out April 9th on Matador. It will be the follow-up to 2011's critically lauded effort, Smoke Ring For My Halo. He's unveiled a video for his first cut from the album, 'Wakin On A Pretty Day' with artwork by ESPO (Stephen Powers) – the track is chilled, albeit nine minutes long, featuring his sublime melodic roots-rock and smatterings of lo-fi indie. He's also announced stints at Coachella and Primavera, along with a major US/EU/UK tour.
