Matador Records announce the release of Steve Gunn’s new album Eyes On The Lines (out June 3rd), from which they have shared his video for Conditions Wild, his debut single. The song is directly inspired by Rebecca Solnit’s A Field Guide to Getting Lost, the highly-stylized video, directed by Brandon Herman, captures the notion of finding comfort in getting lost and embracing the unknown, an important concept to Gunn in his songwriting and playing, and the creation of Eyes On The Lines as a whole.
According to Matadoe this follow-up to the pastoral and highly acclaimed Way Out Weather, is Gunn’s most explicit ode to the blissful uncertainty of adventure yet.
Gunn is accommpanied by a full band – Nathan Bowles (drums, banjo, organ), Hans Chew (wurlitzer), James Elkington (guitar, lap steel, dobro), Mary Lattimore (harp), Jason Meagher (bass, guitar, flute), Paul Sukeena (guitar), Justin Tripp (bass, keyboards), John Truscinski (drums).
