King Tuff, will release Smalltown Stardust deluxe dust on all DSPs. This expanded digital-only version of his 2023 album Smalltown Stardust includes the original 11-track album, one previously unreleased song, and four different studio versions of songs from the album. King Tuff has announced club & festival dates, opening for Angel Olsen in both CA and the UK this summer and fall, as well as appearances at THING Fest in Port Townsend, WA, and End of The Road Fest in the UK. See below for a full list of dates.

King Tuff mastermind Kyle Thomas has this to say about the release: “For the deluxe version of Smalltown Stardust, I’ve done some digging and found a few alternate versions of songs from the record. I often try songs in different ways before I land on the final versions, and these tracks are a good representation of that! Some of these songs were kicking around for years before they finally fell into place. I wrote ‘The Wheel’ all the way back in 2005! Sometimes they just need to stew I suppose. These versions are mid-stew but I think they still taste pretty good!”

Thomas says: “This is the first song Sasami and I wrote when we first started working on the record, about a mysterious, reclusive musician who I won’t name (Chris Weisman). It was half finished and abandoned pretty early on, but I like it just the way it is! Note the crumhorn solo in the outro.”
