Australian musician Tex Crick has shared a bevy of exciting news, announcing he has signed to Mac Demarco's record label, Mac's Record Label, and the release of his debut album, Live In…New York City. The record, due out this March, is the first release from the label, excluding Demarco's own releases.
Having played with the likes of Iggy Pop, Weyes Blood, Kirin J. Callinan, and Connan Mockasin, Crick is venturing out with his new musical project, exploring and honing in on his own unique sound. The record is set to be a homage to sentimentality, merging classic songcraft with a naturally delicate approach to instrumentation.
Crick has shared the albums lead single, Sometimes I Forget, alongside an official visual for the track directed by Monika Mogi. Filmed in Japan due to to travel restrictions keeping Crick from returning to New York, the visual encapsulates the sentimentality of the track, bringing the nostalgic quality to life.
The records cover is the perfect example of the musicians humour, with Crick hiring a private investigator to follow him around and report his findings back to crick himself. Crick says he "had an idea to email a private investigator pretending I was a woman with a cheating spouse. I arranged for him to follow and photograph my cheating husband (which would actually be me). I had the P.I. follow me around Manhattan all day taking pictures of me. I ended up using one of the private investigator’s pictures as the album cover. I still don’t know who the guy was that took the photo. All I know is that his name is Ed."
Live In…New York City is out March 26th. Watch the music video for Sometimes I Forget below!
