Kurt Vile has announced a new EP in collaboration with Sore Eros, Pitchfork reports.

The three-track record - called 'Jamaica Plain' - will feature material recorded in the early 2000s, when Vile was still working as a forklift truck driver before he signed a record deal with the Matador label. Created in collaboration with Sore Eros - aka Robert Robinson, who was once a member of Vile's band The Violators - the tracks were recorded in Vile's hometown of Philadelphia and in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts.

Last month, Vile was presented with the Liberty Bell Award after it was announced August 28 would be named Kurt Vile Day in Philadelphia. The award is the highest honour the city can bestow upon one of its citizens and is only eligible to be received by natives of the area. It is presented in recognition of outstanding professional achievements and civic generosity. Vile was born in Philadelphia in 1980 and is known for his love of the city.

The 'Jamaica Plain' EP will be released on November 4 and will be available as a 10" and digital download. The tracklisting is as follows:

'Jamaica Plain'
'Calling Out Of Work'

Kurt Vile returns to the UK in December for a six-date tour. Vile will play the following dates:

London O2 Shepherds Bush Empire (Dec 11)
