Mac DeMarco is releasing a new album, This Old Dog, on May 5 via Captured Tracks. Previously he has shared the album's first two tracks, title track "This Old Dog" and "My Old Man," as well as a video for "This Old Dog" and the audio for "On the Level." Now he has shared another song from the album, "One More Love Song." He has also launched a fan fiction contest and has been interviewed by Marc Maron for his Podcast (listen here). Listen to "One More Love Song" below, followed by DeMarco's upcoming tour dates.

The fan fiction contest is open to members of DeMarco's fan club. Fans are asked to send in "a fun, original piece about anything Mac related." The contest runs from May 1 to August 15 and the silly prize is "a drawing of himself/herself with Mac illustrated by one of Mac's favorite artists, Stefan Marx," as well as having the winner's story "be featured in the Fan Club Fanzine that every member receives at the end of the year."

This Old Dog was written and demoed just before DeMarco moved across country, from Queens to Los Angeles. It was then recorded in Los Angeles. "I demoed a full album, and as I was moving to the West Coast I thought I'd get to finishing it quickly," said DeMarco in a previous press release. "But then I realized that moving to a new city, and starting a new life takes time. Usually I just write, record, and put it out; no problem. But this time, I wrote them and they sat. When that happens, you really get to know the songs. It was a different vibe."

DeMarco says he took a different approach to writing and recording this album in other ways too. "The majority of this album is acoustic guitar, synthesizer, some drum machine, and one song is electric guitar. So this is a new thing for me," he says in the press release. "This is my acoustic album, but it's not really an acoustic album at all. That's just what it feels like, mostly. I'm Italian, so I guess this is an Italian rock record."

This Old Dog is the follow-up to DeMarco's 2015-released eight-song mini-album, Another One, and 2014's full-length, Salad Days.
