'b'lieve i'm goin down...' is the US musician's sixth studio album

Listen to Kurt Vile’s sixth full length album, ‘b’lieve i’m goin down…’ four days ahead of official release.

The US singer-songwriter told Rolling Stone earlier this year that the LP would be out at “some point in autumn”, and now he’s streaming it for free before it hits record stores on Friday.

Vile has previously talked about his sixth record including “ethereal, Appalachian-influenced folk songs” that are more “unguarded and vulnerable” and have a “night vibe”.

‘Pretty Pimpin’
‘I’m an Outlaw
‘Dust Bunnies’
‘That’s Life, tho (almost hate to say)’
‘Life Like This’
‘All in a Daze Work’
‘Lost My Head there
‘Stand Inside
‘Bad Omens
‘Kidding Around
‘Wild Imagination

Deluxe 3 LP Edition bonus tracks:

‘Believe I’m Goin down’
‘Less Talk (More Walkin Away)’
‘Nicotine Blues’
‘Bad Omens (No Faders)’
‘No Stranger to the Ball Bust’
‘Sax Omens (J Turbo)’
