Atlanta-based visual artist and musician Lonnie Holley has announced the September 21 release of his third album, MITH, the followup to 2013’s Keeping A Record Of It. The video for the aptly titled first single I Woke Up In A Fucked-Up America, created by Atlanta videographers Matt Arnett and Ethan Payne, was released today.
The 10 tracks of MITH will include collaborations with fellow artist Laraaji, the late Richard Swift, folk duo Anna & Elizabeth, experimental musician Shahzad Ismaily, Della Mae’s Courtney Hartman, saxophonist Sam Gendel, and the Nelson Patton duo. The album is being released on the Jagjaguwar label (also home to Bon Iver, Angel Olsen and Dinosaur Jr). Holley performs at Atlanta’s Symphony Hall on July 17 with indie band Animal Collective, the first date in a 10-city summer tour.
