“Number One (In New York)” Titus Andronicus

March 2nd sees the release of the new studio album A Productive Cough by Titus Andronicus, via Merge Records

The “Number One (In New York)” music video serves as a trailer of sorts for the forthcoming 60-minute “making of the al.bum” documentary film, also directed by Ray Concepcion, to be released February 26. Viewers will be granted unprecedented access to New Paltz, NY’s Marcata Recording, where A Productive Cough was recorded under the guidance of longtime +@ producer Kevin S. McMahon. Clips from the film will be periodically unveiled over the coming weeks at a-productive-cough.com, the newly launched site which will function as a one-stop shop for curious fans to follow the developing story of +@’s bold new era.

Also premiering today at a-productive-cough.com is a thorough and wide-ranging interview with Patrick Stickles conducted by author/musician Ryan Walsh, offering further insight into the motivations and aspirations behind the new album and its place along the winding and circuitous path of +@’s career.

The release of A Productive Cough will be accompanied by +@’s first-ever “acoustic” tour of the United States, which will find Stickles performing in a duo configuration with pianist Alex Molini. Find those dates below, all of which feature direct support courtesy of Rick Maguire from Pile.
