New Elvis Perkins in Dearland: Shampoo

Waaaaay back in 2006, I told you that Elvis Perkins’ While You Were Sleeping (off the outstanding Ash Wednesday) was my favorite song of that year.

Earlier in 2006, Perkins played a studio session at KEXP, and one of the four tracks he played was Shampoo, an old/new song that will appear on his March 10 self-titled album under the name Elvis Perkins in Dearland, on XL Recordings. The album, recorded in upstate New York in late 2008, includes a full band, the same group that joined Perkins on the road in support of Ash Wednesday.

Here’s the tracklisting for the new album, which I’m excited to hear in full band glory:

Hours Last Stand
I Heard Your Voice in Dresden
Send My Fond Regards to Lonelyville
I’ll Be Arriving
Chains, Chains, Chains
123 Goodbye
How’s Forever Been Baby
