Kevin Morby released a new album, Oh My God, back in April via Dead Oceans. Now he has announced some new 2020 tour dates. Furthermore, he is auctioning his white suit he wore on the tour for his previous album, City Music, with proceeds going to Tour Support, which is a division of LightHopeLife that "provides critical mental health resources for artists, crews and vendors to support them on the road and when they get home." He's wearing the suit in the photo above. Find more info on the auction below, as well as his upcoming tour dates and the "City Music" video that features the suit.

Morby had this to say in a press release: "This suit is very special as it was the first of many made by my good friend Judith at RoseCut clothing. I went on to wear it on a few special occasions in 2017 including the 'City Music' video shoot, my performance at Bonnaroo as well as a short east coast tour which included my first sold out show at my favorite venue, The Bowery Ballroom."

Previously Morby shared a video for Oh My God's first single, "No Halo" (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Then he shared another song from the album, "Nothing Sacred / All Things Wild," also via a video (it was also one of our Songs of the Week). Then he shared another new song from it, "OMG Rock n Roll," via a video for the track (it was also one of our Songs of the Week).

Oh My God is billed as Morby's "first true concept-album" and tackles religion. Morby released two excellent albums in back-to-back years: Singing Saw in 2016 and City Music in 2017, both via Dead Oceans, but then took a break from releasing a new album in 2018. Previous collaborator Sam Cohen produced the album in his Brooklyn studio. It started as a four-day recording session, but soon blossomed into something more ambitious than just making another album like his last two.

"Sam suggested that we make songs that sound like sonic pop-art that only have a few colors, like a Keith Haring piece," Morby said in a previous press release. "My other records had tons of colors, so we decided to keep this stark, like a painting that's black-and-white with one vibrant blue."
