Kurt Vile

Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep)

Matador Records


Released: 15th Jan 2021


kurt reels off a cosy little ep, featuring covers of john prine (featuring the man himself), jack clement and two originals.

Kurt Vile’s 'Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep)' was recorded and mixed in sporadic sessions that spanned four years at The Butcher Shoppe studio in Nashville, TN. It was recorded alongside a cast of local heavies like Bobby Wood, Dave Roe, and Kenny Malone with Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) and Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Superwolf) tossed into the mix as well. Most importantly, it features what KV has called "Probably the single most special musical moment in my life” –a duet with the late John Prine on the songwriter’s well-loved tune, “How Lucky.”
