Kurt Vile is streaming his new album, 'Wakin On A Pretty Daze', ahead of its official release on April 8.

Scroll down to listen to the record via NPR.

The follow-up to 2011's 'Smoke Ring For My Halo' is Vile's fifth album and was produced by John Agnello. He recently told Spin that the record sounds like Fleetwood Mac's 'Tusk'.

"It's totally our 'Tusk', but no cheese. Just rock," Vile said of the album, which features guest appearances from Farmer Dave Scher of Beachwood Sparks and Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint.

"You turn it on and it sounds like me. But the guitar playing is better and the ideas are new. It's classic, it's epic, with many more solos," he added.

On Saturday (March 30), Kurt Vile threw a parade in his home city of Philadelphia. Hosted by comedian Tom Scharpling, the parade - believed to be for the filming of a new video - took place at a secret location in the city.

Kurt Vile will play Field Day in London on May 25 with The Violators.

The 'Wakin On A Pretty Daze' tracklisting is:

'Wakin On A Pretty Day'
'KV Crimes'
'Was All Talk'
'Girl Called Alex'
'Never Run Away'
'Pure Pain'
'Too Hard'
'Shame Chamber'
'Snowflakes Are Dancing'
'Air Bud'
'Goldtone'
