Kurt Vile Speed Sound Lonely KV


Kurt Vile has announced a new EP. It’s called Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep) and it arrives October 2 via Matador. The five-track release features two new Kurt Vile songs (“Dandelion” and “Pearls”), covers of two John Prine songs (“Speed of the Sound of Loneliness” and “How Lucky,” featuring Prine himself), and a cover of “Cowboy” Jack Clement’s “Gone Girl.” Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys and Matt Sweeney of Chavez and Superwolf also contributed to the new EP. Listen to “How Lucky” with Prine below.

Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep) was recorded with Nashville producer David “Fergie” Ferguson (Clement’s protege) at the Butcher Shoppe recording studio. Following the first day in the studio, Fergie introduced Vile to Prine backstage at the Station Inn. Three years later, on a return trip to Nashville, Vile and Prine recorded “How Lucky” together—a moment he called “probably the single most special musical moment in [his] life.” Vile said:

The truth is John was my hero for a long time when he came into The Butcher Shoppe to recut one of his deepest classics with me. And, man, I was floating and flying and I couldn’t hear anything he told me while he was there till after he was gone for the night.

A couple nights later we were playing “How Lucky” together again; this time onstage at the Grand Ole Opry on New Year’s Eve at the turn of 2020. Nothing like seeing John and his band of musical brothers and family and friends playing into the new decade in front of an adoring audience on that stage in Nashville, Tennessee… and, yup, that’s just how lucky we all got that night.

Kurt Vile’s last album, Bottle It In, was released in 2018. The year prior to that, he and Courtney Barnett released their collaborative record Lotta Sea Lice.
