Wild Nothing Announces Sophomore Album
Two years after the release of his debut album Gemini in 2010, the unlikely internet success story that was Wild Nothing (A.K.A. Jack Tatum) continues. His label Captured Tracks announced yesterday that a follow-up album titled Nocturne will be out by Aug. 28.
Tatum moved from Blacksburg, Va., down south to Savannah, Ga., to record Nocturne, which he said will be even more focused on an exploration of pop music than his first.
“It’s definitely more my sense of what pop music used to be or even what pop music would be in my ideal world,” he said in a press release. All signs point up for the dream pop obsessive: title track “Nocturne” is a nifty mix of jangly surf pop and elegant string arrangements. You can stream the song and check out Wild Nothing’s summer tour dates below.
