Car Seat Headrest (aka Will Toledo and band) have announced a new live album, Commit Yourself Completely, and shared a live video for one of its tracks, “Fill in the Blank.” Commit Yourself Completely is a digital album and is due out very soon, on June 17, via Matador. Check out the “Fill in the Blank” video below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art. And if you want to see the band live in person, then check out their tour dates below as well.

Commit Yourself Completely features a seven-person lineup, including the members of Naked Giants. The album includes a cover of Frank Ocean’s “Ivy.”

Toledo had this to say about the album in a press release: “This is a compilation of songs from shows we played in 2018. We recorded every show we did that year, and I went through about 50 of them to get the final tracklist for this album. This isn’t necessarily the best possible version of each track, but it’s some of the most fun we’ve had on stage. I particularly remember the show we did in the small French town of Amiens, maybe the smallest show we did that year, and how great it felt to be up in people’s faces with everyone plugging in to the music right away. The recordings we made of the shows came out very clean, so rather than try to artificially recreate how it sounded in the different venues night to night, I tried to give the whole album that in-your-face feeling, like we’re playing the songs right in front of you. When you’re onstage with everything happening at once, you never really know what it sounds like in the room anyways; all you know is how the music is feeling. Hopefully this will give you a sense of what these shows felt like.”

Car Seat Headrest released a new album of sorts, Twin Fantasy, back in February 2018 via Matador. It was a re-imagined version of an album also titled Twin Fantasy that Toledo self-released to Bandcamp in 2011.
