Your Silver Man // Nightlands’ Dave Hartley Announces New Album, ‘Oak Island,’ Listen to First Single Today

The good news keeps on coming! Dave Hartley brings you his sophomore album under the Nightlands moniker. Titled Oak Island, it’s the follow up to Forget the Mantra, released in 2010. Dave uses the Nightlands name as a vehicle to further understand art through the analytical process. He engages a side we don’t often see portrayed in his other endeavors, namely his role as bassist in The War On Drugs.

The new album boasts of ten pops songs, stories that take the listener on a scientific journey through the human experience. Today, the silver-tinged Hartley shares with us the first single and album standout, “So Far So Long.” Come – to space we go. Enjoy the track above or at Pitchfork, where it premiered this morning. Oak Island is out January 22, 2013.

Dave’s got a few shows coming up in Philadelphia. See all dates below!
