Today, Damien Jurado debuts a new song, Allocate, off his forthcoming album The Horizon Just Laughed, due out May 4th, 2018. The track follows the early March release of first single, Over Rainbows and Rainier, which can be heard via the scenic, Jordan Halland-directed video here. The Horizon Just Laughed will be available for purchase on May 4th and available to stream via Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora on July 6th.

Like previous albums, The Horizon Just Laughed started with a dream. Though, that’s where things change, as they often do. It is Damien Jurado’s first self-produced album in a 20+ year career, more personal and more rooted than even his Maraqopa” trilogy, as though after so much time on the road he’s stumbled upon his home.

Pre-order The Horizon Just Laughed

The album feels like a beautiful collage — its narrative pieced together through letters and postcards, with each part contributing to its greater whole, and providing snapshots of ones journey to find a sense of place and connection to a changing world.

Jurado will head out on the Over Rainbows North American tour in support of The Horizon Just Laughed next month, beginning May 11th in Bloomington, IN. The tour continues through June 4th in Vancouver, BC and includes a May 24th Brooklyn, NY, show at Murmrr Theatre and a May 28th show Los Angeles, CA at Highland Park Ebell.
