John Cale Announces New Album

Another John Cale solo album is on the way. Shifty Adventures In Nookie Wood will be released on Oct. 2 via Domino Records. The album was recorded in Cale’s Los Angeles studio and features a collaboration with Danger Mouse on the opening track “I Wanna Talk 2 U.”

Cale is best known for his role as Lou Reed’s right-hand man in The Velvet Underground, but he has also been one of the most consistent and prolific solo artists of the past half century. Dabbling in everything from avant-garde classical to drone to pop, Cale hasn’t gone five years without releasing at least one album since leaving The Velvet Underground.

Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood will be available on gatefold heavyweight vinyl, CD and digital download. Take a look at the tracklist below.
