Ryley Walker is happy to share his latest single “The Roundabout,” taken from his upcoming album Golden Sings that Have Been Sung (out August 19 on Dead Oceans). A few weeks ago, we shared the first track, “The Halfwit in Me,” to great praise. Stream both tracks below and whet your appetite for one of the years most anticipated albums.

Produced by Wilco multi-instrumentalist LeRoy Bach, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung was made for the dewy magic hour when night and day have yet to meet and, as long as the song is playing, you feel you might briefly leave the corporeal world with them. This is the music you might imagine the woodland animals making once the humans have left for the night. This is Ryley Walker’s coming of age.

Ryley will play two record release shows in support of Golden Sings That Have Been Sung at Rough Trade East in London on August 19th and at Empty Bottle in Chicago on August 25th with full U.S. and European tours to follow. A full list of dates is below with more to be announced soon.
