Ariel Pink is coming back down under! The American multi-instrumentalist has announced his return to Australia for a tour to plug his new album Dedicated to Bobby Jameson.
He’ll be heading our way in November to play a handful of live dates in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Sydney.
To give the announcement an extra kick he’s also dropped a brand new track today dubbed ‘Feels Like Heaven’, which he describes as “a lovelorn insta-classic playing tribute to the promise of romance” (listen below).
This new headlining tour will mark Ariel’s first live shows on Aussie turf since 2015. Meanwhile, his new concept LP, Dedicated To Bobby Jameson, is due to reach our ears on Friday, 15th September.
“We follow the protagonist through a battery of tests and milestones, the first of which sees him reborn into life out of death,” the visual artist-turned-muso explains, referencing the disc’s opening track, ‘Time to Meet Your God’.
“From there, he seesaws his way between the innocent love and the rock-solid edifice of childhood-worn trauma that together constitute his lifelong initiation into the realm of artifice and theatrical disposability.”
