    A new album from Mac DeMarco is slated for release this Spring. Entitled Here Comes the Cowboy, the 13-track LP marks DeMarco’s fourth full-length to date and serves as the follow-up to 2017’s This Old Dog. A release date has been set for May 10th via DeMarco’s Record Label.

    Here Comes The Cowboy was written, tracked, and mixed at DeMarco’s Jizz Jazz Studios in Los Angeles during the first two weeks of an exceptionally rainy January, 2019, according to a press release. Nearly every instrument on the album was played by DeMarco, aside from keyboards on select tracks by touring member and close friend Alec Meen.

    In a statement, DeMarco calls the album his “cowboy record,” adding, “Cowboy is a term of endearment to me, I use it often when referring to people in my life. Where I grew up there are many people that sincerely wear cowboy hats and do cowboy activities. These aren’t the people I’m referring to.”

    Update: Some fans have accused DeMarco of lifting from Mitski (who recently released Be the Cowboy), but a representative for both musicians says the similarity in album titles is merely coincidental. For her part, Mitski is taking the news in stride. “I’m 100% sure mac & I just went fishing in the same part of the collective unconscious!” she tweeted.

    As a first listen, DeMarco has shared the album’s first single, “Nobody”, along with its self-directed, rather ghoulish music video. Watch it below.

    Pre-orders for Here Comes the Cowboy are ongoing. You can get DeMarco’s past albums on vinyl here.
