Here’s the nine-minute dreamy psych jammer you’ve been waiting for to kick off your Monday – it comes in the form of the quasi-title track, “Wakin on a Pretty Day,” on Kurt Vile’s new record, Wakin on a Pretty Daze. If you’re braving the horrific weather on the east coast right now, you could definitely use this one – Vile’s tender, echo-y strumming, hazy solos, and lazy-day vocals summon enough images and memories of summer days to keep you going. Listen to it while you check out the record’s album cover, a mural designed by the street artist ESPO. Wakin on a Pretty Daze is out April 9 – we can’t wait to hear it. Download “Wakin’ on a Pretty Day” here. Listen below:
