“It is a depiction of isolation,” Morby said of the album. “Of the past. Of an uncertain future. Of provisions. Of an omen. Of a dead deer. Of an icon. Of a Los Angeles themed hotel in rural Kansas. Of billowing campfires, a mermaid and a highway lined in rabbit fur. It is a depiction of the nervous feeling that comes with the sky’s proud announcement that another day will be soon coming to a close as the pink light recedes and the street lamps and house lights suddenly click on.”
Along with the announcement, Morby has also announced a “virtual tour” in which he’ll play each of his albums the whole way through via livestream. He’s also shared a lead single called “Campfire,” a two-part sprawl that features one of the album’s evocations of its title. The song comes with a video directed by Johnny Eastlund and Dylan Isbell, and featuring Crutchfield.
