From Chuck Prophet
Night Surfer, the thirteenth studio album for acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Chuck Prophet, will be released September 23 on Yep Roc Records. In advance of the release listen to new tracks “Wish Me Luck” and “Tell Me Anything (Turn To Gold)” as well as dive deeper into the acclaimed singer’s Yep Roc Catalog.
Of the <i style="font-size: 14.44444465637207px;">Night Surfer</i>, Prophet comments, "This record is loosely conceptual but universal all the same. It’s all about a path forward, about looking around and imagining where we’ll be in 20 years if we just follow that path. And of course, you’ll find a persistent anxiety throughout; we live, after all, in anxious times. As John Murry told me after a first listen, ‘It brings a tear to the eye and blood to the johnson.’” So yeah, a new record, new sound. It’s got it’s own groove with in your face guitars that snake and harmonize. They jangle too, thanks in no small part to special guest Peter Buck.”
The new record follows Prophet’s widely praised 2012 release, Temple Beautiful, of which Paste Magazine asserted, “Not since Lou Reed paid homage to the city and era that forged him with New York has there been a song cycle dedicated to a place and reality that offers the core immediacy with the thump, churn and ferocity of Chuck Prophet’s Temple Beautiful.”
