Cass McCombs has announced a new album, Tip of the Sphere, and shared its first single, “Sleeping Volcanoes.” Tip of the Sphere is due out February 8, 2019 via ANTI-. He has also announced some tour dates. Check out “Sleeping Volcanoes” below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art, as well as the tour dates.

The album is the follow-up to 2016’s Mangy Love, which made Under the Radar’s Top 100 Albums of 2016 list. McCombs traditionally records his albums in bits and pieces in different studios over time, but took a different approach with Tip of the Sphere, recording the whole thing quickly in one location: Shahzad Ismaily’s Figure 8 Studios in Brooklyn. A press release says this new approach “brought his songs a raw immediacy and a special balance of compassion and experimentation with the intent of making a more consistent statement.” Sam Owens (aka Sam Evian) engineered the album, which features McCombs on guitar and vocals, as well as Dan Horne (bass), Otto Hauser (drums), and Frank LoCrasto (piano, organ, and more), as well as some guests.
