Details of the new Kurt Vile album can finally be confirmed: One of the most critically and commercially acclaimed artists of the last decade will release 'Bottle It In' on Matador Records / Remote Control!

The announcement is accompanied by the release of a new song titled 'Bassackwards', which follows previously released Bottle It In single, 'Loading Zones', an ode to the parking challenges in Vile's native Philadelphia, described alternately as "Vile at his comforting, shaggy best" (The Guardian), and an "ambiguous rumination on small town life" (MOJO). The epic, loping 'Bassackwards' is the album's beating heart and Vile's most compelling evocation of how he sees the world: "I was on the ground circa Planet Earth, but out of sorts," he sings over a gently psychedelic bed of backmasked guitars. "But I snapped back, baby, just in time to jot it down."

Travel can inspire in surprising ways: Kurt Vile discovered as much making his first record in three years, the eclectic and electrifying Bottle It In, which he recorded at various studios around the country over two very busy years, during sessions that usually punctuated the ends of long tours or family road trips. Every song, whether it's a concise and catchy pop composition or a sprawling guitar epic, becomes a journey unto itself, taking unexpected detours, circuitous melodic avenues, or open-highway solos. If Vile has become something of a rock guitar god-a mantle he would dismiss out of humility but also out of a desire to keep getting better, to continue absorbing new music, new sounds, new ideas-it's due to his precise, witty playing style, which turns every riff and rhythm into points on a map and takes the scenic route from one to the next.
