Washed Out (aka Ernest Greene) has announced a new album, Mister Mellow, and shared an album trailer. It’s due out June 30 via his new label, Stone’s Throw. Washed Out recently shared a new song, “Get Lost,” as well as a video for the song. Mister Mellow will also be released as a visual album. Below is the album trailer, followed by the “Get Lost” video again, the album’s tracklist, and his upcoming tour dates.

Greene recorded Mister Mellow himself, with help only from mix engineer Cole MGN. According to a press release, the visual album “utilizes almost every form of animation (collage, claymation, hand-drawn, stop-motion).”

The press release describes the themes of the album as such: “A fully immersive multimedia experience, the album playfully guides the listener through the highs and lows of this often ridiculous struggle. In classic Millennial fashion, most young adults’ perception of their own lives are overblown and overdramatized to the point of absurdity - as are the many ways they distract themselves from the insecurities faced on a daily basis (see social media, fantasy, drugs, music). Mister Mellow shines a light on the humor found in this paradox - how we can be so bored and unhappy in what is often a very privileged, contented life?”

And the press describes the sound of the album as such: “Styles as diverse as free jazz, house, hip-hop and psych are combined together with interludial voiceover samples (often pulled from anonymous Youtube vlogs) to create a busy, chaotic, and caricaturish mix; one that quickly starts to feel like a mirror of the claustrophobic, hyper-stimulated psyche of most young adults.”

Washed Out’s last album was 2013’s Paracosm.
