New Daniel Johnston track and forthcoming album

Daniel Johnston and Jason Falkner

A couple of years I had a life-changing musical experience when I saw Daniel Johnston play live. I’ve since seen the film about him and downloaded his entire musical output.

Daniel’s new album, Is And Always Was, comes out in early October. You can read more about it, see the album artwork and a tracklisting, and liste to new song “Freedom” at Brooklyn Vegan. Stereogum also has a perspective on it – it’s a “higher-fi” sound – and the new song and artwork.
