Mac DeMarco has announced a new album, This Old Dog, and shared two songs from it, title track “This Old Dog” and “My Old Man,” which are the album’s first two tracks. This Old Dog is due out May 5 via Captured Tracks. Check out both songs below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art, and DeMarco’s upcoming tour dates.

The album 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 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.
