(Sandy) Alex G Shares “Proud”

(Sandy) Alex G shares "Proud"

(Sandy) Alex G shares a third song from the forthcoming Rocket – the bouncing country-rock song “Proud”. “Proud” follows on from “Bobby” and “Witch”, both released upon announcement of the new record, out May 19th on Domino. Going forward, Alex G will be known as (Sandy) Alex G. We are unable to provide further comment at this time, but would appreciate you using the new titling for all future mentions.

Rocket is the Philadelphia-based artist’s eighth full-length release—an assured statement that follows a slate of humble works, many of them self-recorded and self-released, stretching from 2010’s RACE to his 2015 Domino debut, Beach Music. Rocket’s sessions began shortly after Beach Music’s ended, with Alex tracking songs at home, by himself and with friends, in the gaps between a hectic 2015 and 2016 touring schedule. Rocket was mixed by Jacob Portrait (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Bass Drum of Death), who also lent his hand to Beach Music, giving the album a fine-tuning that retains the homespun personality of earlier efforts.

Rocket is available to pre-order now on ltd. red translucent vinyl, ltd. red translucent cassette (Domino Mart exclusive), ltd. random colorway cassette (Bandcamp exclusive), CD, and digital download.

A full North American Rocket tour has been announced, with all dates going on sale this Wednesday, April 5th. All shows are below.
