Mac DeMarco releases his fourth album Here Comes The Cowboy in May of this year and plays his biggest shows in Germany in November.
The sequel of the 2017 album This Old Dog, dubbed by Entertainment Weekly as the best romantic tunes the well-known romantic has ever penned, is the first release on Mac’s record label. At the same time, Nobody is the wonderfully lurching lead single of the album, to which DeMarco has also made a video.
Mac DeMarco describes his album like this: This one is my cowboy record. Cowboy is a term of endearment to me, I use it often when referring to people in my life. Cowboy hats and do cowboy activities. These are not the people I’m referring to.
Here Comes The Cowboy was written, recorded and produced during the first two weeks of the exceptionally rainy January 2019 at DeMarco’s Jizz Jazz Studios in Los Angeles. With the exception of some keyboard tracks of his friend and touring band member Alec Meen, DeMarco has recorded it himself. Joe Santarpia, Mac’s live sound engineer, helped with the production.
