Delicate Steve Releases New Tracks at 10 N.Y. Locations
New Album Positive Force to be Released July 10
Delicate Steve, also known as New Jersey songwriter Steve Marion, is set to release his second full length album, Positive Force, on July 10. Like the 2011 debut, Wondervisions, Delicate Steve’s sophomore album will be released on David Byrne’s Luaka Bop Records.
Although Positive Force will not be released until July, you can listen to all 10 of the album’s tracks right now—All you need is a map of New York and a lot of time to kill.
Luaka Bop has partnered with the WWMTH Creative Lab to scatter “public listening installations” across Brooklyn and Manhattan. At each of the 10 stations, you can plug in a pair of headphones and hear a track off Delicate Steve’s upcoming release.
The installations will only be in place from May 31-June 3, so plan your audio scavenger hunt accordingly. You can find the all of the installation locations and operating hours below (click here for a Google Map) Delicate Steve will also be touring this summer in support of Positive Force.
