As you may remember, Doveman released a couple of songs to Brooklyn Vegan and Stereogum as a preview for his upcoming album. Yesterday, Pitchfork posted a little story revealing the album's title (The Conformist), cover (pictured left), tracklist, and a new song featuring The National's Matt Berninger, which you can stream below:
The Conformist will be released October 20th.
In other, more immediate news, The 802 Tour is having its sole 2009 show tonight at Columbia University's Miller Theatre. Featuring Doveman, Nico Muhly, and Sam Amidon "playing each other's music," they're also bringing in a string quartet to play Nico's arrangements on songs from The Conformist. You can purchase tickets here. Hope to see you there.
