Listen to Kurt Vile’s hazy new song ‘One Trick Ponies’ from upcoming album ‘Bottle It In’

'Bottle It In' will drop on October 12

Kurt Vile has released a new song today (October 4), taken from his upcoming album ‘Bottle It In.’

‘One Trick Ponies’ is the third song to be released from the album, out on October 12, with ‘Bassackwards’ and ‘Loading Zones’ having been released previously.

Described as “a joyful and infectious country rock number,” the track hears Vile play harmonica, guitar and piano. It also features harmonies with Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa and Farmer Dave Scher.


Vile’s upcoming album will feature artists including Kim Gordon, Cass McCombe and others.

‘Bottle It In’ is Vile’s first solo material since 2015’s ‘b’lieve I’m goin down…’, and his first piece of new music since his collaborative album with Courtney Barnett, ‘Lotta Sea Lice’, which came out last year.

Vile recently performed ‘One Trick Ponies’ and some other new songs in a Pitchfork Live performance in NYC’s Caskill Mountains. You can watch the performance below:
