LA’s prodigal son Ariel Pink will be returning to Australia with his band to perform songs from his forthcoming album, Dedicated to Bobby Jameson, out September 15. Catch him at the Rosemount Hotel on November 25.
His new album makes direct reference to the titular Los Angeles musician, long presumed dead, who resurfaced online in 2007 after 35 reclusive years in isolation to write his autobiography and tragic life story in a series of blogs and YouTube tirades.
“His book and life resonated with me to such a degree that I felt a need to dedicate my latest record to him,” Pink says.
As well as the announcement of the tour, Ariel Pink has released Feels Like Heaven, a lovelorn tribute to the promise of romance. You can listen to the track below.
Dedicated to Bobby Jameson is out September 15. Ariel Pink plays the Rosemount Hotel on November 25.
