Rhett Miller released the official video for “Go Through You,” the single from his critically acclaimed new album The Misfit that was released in September via ATO Records. Miller has also announced a string of new solo tour dates, in addition to a monthly residency at The Loft at City Winery in New York. Find a full list of tour dates below.
“Asking around various artists and friends in my adopted hometown of New Paltz, NY, I discovered these three young filmmakers James Hyland, Myles Flusser and Alex Young. Their vision for the video was so extravagant and ambitious, I thought that there was no way they could pull it off. And then they did! What they came up with feels to me like a beautiful love letter to New York’s Hudson Valley. After working with these three young artists, I feel like the future is in good hands,” Miller explains about the video.
The Misfit, Miller’s first solo album in more than four years, was co-written and produced by Miller’s Hudson Valley, NY neighbor Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby, Sharon Van Etten, Danger Mouse) and continues their musical partnership that began on 2018’s The Messenger. In selecting the cover art for The Misfit, Miller reached out to globally renowned painter Ashley Longshore, who he first connected with on his podcast, Wheels Off.
Miller stopped by NPR’s World Cafe to perform songs from the new album, who said, “the new songs are warm and thoughtful. They also glow with the contented energy of an artist who has established himself but still finds the freedom to experiment and play.” The first song to be released from the album, “Follow You Home,” was praised by American Songwriter, BrooklynVegan and Rolling Stone, who said, “With shades of Fleetwood Mac and dream-pop, the buoyant “Follow You Home” is anchored by its upbeat rhythm and sunny splashes of electric guitar.”
Miller’s band Old 97’s have announced they will release a Record Store Day 12” EP One More Ride: Old 97’s Play Johnny Cash. The limited edition vinyl release will only be available for Record Store Day on November 25. Find a full tracklist below.
