Today of all days, the last single from Tourist has arrived. Lend your ears to “Watch Me Go (Back In Time)” and watch the music video I had the opportunity to write and direct beside Chakra Media, who gallantly shot and edited the work with precision/vision. John Moreland helped push this song forward on bass, programming, and harmonies. Tourist comes out everywhere August 5th and can be pre-ordered on vinyl right now at

If you get a copy of the new album on vinyl in advance via Bandcamp, you’ll be entered in a raffle for the first test pressing of Tourist, signed by myself, sealed, and sent off with love. No worries if you’ve already grabbed your copy, you’re entered into the fray, too.
