Kurt Vile announces release of new album 'Wakin On A Pretty Daze'

Kurt Vile has announced the release of his fifth solo album, which is set to be called 'Wakin On A Pretty Daze'.

The follow-up to 2011's 'Smoke Ring For My Halo', will come out via Matador on April 8.

The album was produced by John Agnello. Vile recently told Spin that the record sounds like Fleetwood Mac's 'Tusk'.

"It's totally our 'Tusk', but no cheese. Just rock," he said of the album, which features guest appearances from Farmer Dave Scher of Beachwood Sparks and Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint.

"You turn it on and it sounds like me. But the guitar playing is better and the ideas are new. It's classic, it's epic, with many more solos," he added.

Kurt Vile will play Field Day in London on May 25 with The Violators.

The 'Wakin On A Pretty Daze' tracklisting is:

'Wakin On A Pretty Day'
'KV Crimes'
'Was All Talk'
'Girl Called Alex'
'Never Run Away'
'Pure Pain'
'Too Hard'
'Shame Chamber'
'Snowflakes Are Dancing'
'Air Bud'
'Goldtone'
