Ariel Pink has announced a new album titled ‘Dedicated to Bobby Jameson’. The follow-up to 2014’s critically acclaimed ‘Pom Pom’ will be released September 15th via Mexican Summer and includes the recently released single ‘Another Weekend’. You can now watch the newly unveiled music video for the track, which is directed by Grant Singer (who has directed videos for Lorde and The Weeknd) and features a cowboy hat-wearing Pink.

The album title refers to Los Angeles musician Bobby Jameson, who in the 60s worked with artists like The Rolling Stones and Frank Zappa. According to a press statement, the album makes a “direct and heartfelt reference” to the late musician, who was long presumed dead and “resurfaced online in 2007 after 35 reclusive years to pen his autobiography and tragic life story in a series of blogs and YouTube tirades.”

“His book and life resonated with me to such a degree that I felt a need to dedicate my latest record to him,” Pink further explains. “We follow the protagonist through a battery of tests and milestones, the first of which sees him reborn into life out of death. From there, he seesaws his way between the innocent love and the rock-solid edifice of childhood-worn trauma that together constitute his lifelong initiation into the realm of artifice and theatrical disposability,” he says of the album’s storyline.

The psych-pop artist also announced a North American tour, which kicks off in October, in support of the album.

Earlier in the year, Ariel Pink collaborated with Weyes Blood for the ‘Myths 002’ EP.
