Ariel Pink announces new album Dedicated to Bobby Jameson

Ariel Pink is back with a new album Dedicated to Bobby Jameson, out on Mexican Summer on September 15. The record is Pink’s first since 2014’s critically acclaimed Pom Pom, which mixed idiosyncratic lyrics with throwback pop and Pink’s unique vocals. Listeners can expect the same summery sounds from this latest album, featuring more of the lo-fi pop and experimental sounds that Pink fans have come to adore.

is named after (you guessed it) Bobby Jameson, an LA musician long thought dead until he resurfaced in 2007. Jameson recorded with The Rolling Stones and Frank Zappa, and is best known for his 1965 album Songs of Protest and Anti-Protest. He died in 2015.
