Mac DeMarco will release a new album this year, as well as hitting the road for shows across North America this spring, summer and fall. The laid-back Canadian strummer’s first LP since 2017’s This Old Dog will also be the first release on the imprint he founded last year, the aptly named Mac’s Record Label.

DeMarco’s new tour dates begin on the West Coast in May, after he plays Coachella; after hopping over to Europe for a few dates in June and July, he’ll return for two more months of North American shows, from Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Bandshell on August 6th to Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre on October 6th.

Details on the album remain scarce, but a press release promises more information soon. In an interview with NPR last year, DeMarco suggested that he was getting more comfortable with writing songs about serious subjects: “If a time comes or, like, you know, something where I need to be frank or be honest or be, you know, earnest or whatever, I’m capable of doing it,” he reportedly said. “I’m a human being, you know. But I think that goofy gets a lot more click-bait than earnest.”
