Mark Kozelek is the driving force behind the folk-rock group Sun Kil Moon and earlier this year, he released a solo album simply titled Mark Kozelek. He will be following it later this year with a new Sun Kil Moon record, This Is My Dinner, out Nov. 1 on Caldo Verde Records.
The first taste of the album comes in the form of a cover of The Partridge Family’s bouncy, joyful “Come On Get Happy,” which isn’t the only cover on the album. AC/DC’s “Rock ‘N’ Roll Singer” will get a makeover and John Connolly’s “Chapter 87 of He” will be set to music.
Sun Kil Moon’s latest albums, 30 Seconds to the Decline of Planet Earth and Common As Light and Love Are Red Valleys Of Blood, were both released just last year, the former in collaboration with Jesu. It’s easy to see the band hasn’t let up from creating since its beloved debut Ghosts Of The Great Highway in 2003—Paste named that record one of the 100 best indie-folk albums of all time.
A free download of the forthcoming album This Is My Dinner will be available on Nov. 1 via the band’s website. It will also be available on streaming services at that time.
