MAC DEMARCO RELEASES NEW ALBUM 'HERE COMES THE COWBOY'

“[Here Comes the Cowboy] condenses his recording aesthetic of 1970s AM pop radio melodies at half speed, gorgeous key changes, psychedelic twang, and sweetly disconsolate snapshots of relationships.” – The Sydney Morning Herald

“13 tracks of absolute quality” – Herald Sun    

“Mac’s masterpiece” – Q magazine

“An album that’s braver, weirder and richer than most of his more sensible and brand-conscious peers could ever manage” – Uncut: 8/10 

“The slacker hero slows things down on his fourth full-length album, finding catharsis in gentle instrumentation and thoughtful lyrics” – NME ★   

“Mac DeMarco’s “jizz jazz” continues to hit the sonic sweet spots” – MOJO    

“Here Comes The Cowboy is DeMarco coming to terms with where his career has taken him while earnestly reflecting on what is important to him in life.” – STACK Magazine

“Displaying his maturity as a songwriter” – Happy Mag

“Brims with lush, languid self-reflections” – Record Collector

Mac DeMarco today releases his fourth full-length album, Here Comes The Cowboy, via Mac’s Record Label / Spunk Records / Caroline Australia. As described by DeMarco, “This one is my cowboy record. Cowboy is a term of endearment to me, I use it often when referring to people in my life. Where I grew up there are many people that sincerely wear cowboy hats and do cowboy activities. These aren’t the people I’m referring to.

The follow up to 2017’s This Old DogHere Comes The Cowboy was written, tracked and mixed at DeMarco’s Jizz Jazz Studios in Los Angeles during the first two weeks of an exceptionally rainy January 2019. Nearly every instrument on the album was played by DeMarco, aside from keyboards on select tracks by touring member and close friend Alec Meen. Traveling sound engineer, Joe Santarpia, helped shape the record, sharing engineering and mixing duties with DeMarco.

In the lead up to album release, singles “Nobody” and “On The Square” received some surreal video treatment, not to be missed – watch below.
