Ariel Pink Announces New Album Dedicated to Bobby Jameson, Releases “Another Weekend” Video

Ariel Pink has announced a new solo album, Dedicated to Bobby Jameson, and released a video for his woozy recent song “Another Weekend.” The new record follows 2o14’s pom pom. He’s also announced a tour behind the record.

The object of the album’s dedication is the late Los Angeles musician Bobby Jameson, who in 1965 released an obscure, self-described “throw away” album under a false name that gradually earned a cult following among folk fans. In 2007, Jameson resurfaced with a blog, where he reminisced about “his failed career” and described futile attempts to claim royalty payments from his old music. “His book and life resonated with me to such a degree that I felt a need to dedicate my latest record to him,” Pink said in a statement. Jameson died in 2015.

Dedicated to Bobby Jameson is out September 15, and it’s Pink’s first album for Mexican Summer. Watch the lo-fi, neon-lit video for “Another Weekend” and find the track list (featuring Dam-Funk), album art, and upcoming tour dates below. “Another Weekend” was directed by Grant Singer, known for his work for stars like the Weeknd and Lorde.
