Our Song of the Day is taken from Bill Callahan’s new single out on 19th August on Drag City. Expanding Dub is a re-imagined take on the song Javelin Unlanding, which is taken from his forthcoming album, ‘Dream River,’ out September 16th on Drag City. The B-Side features “High in the Mid-40’s Dub,” a far-out take on album closer “Winter Road.”
Recorded at Cacophony, TX, earlier this year, ‘Dream River‘ features eight performances that are easily the most sensual and soulful of Callahan’s career. Whether flying home in a small plane, drinking with the sleeping inhabitants of a hotel for company, painting boats for the summer or flying towards the sea along the path of the dream river without the aid of any craft, Bill Callahan is speaking to us in a voice – that “gorgeous thing” (New Yorker) – that belongs to him and only him.
Callahan will tour extensively this fall. Stay tuned for dates and more information on ‘Dream River.’
