Kurt Vile has announced Back to Moon Beach, his new EP out November 17th on Verve, and presented its lead single/video, “Another good year for the roses.” In conjunction, Vile has announced 2024 North American tour dates.

Back to Moon Beach is an EP by no one’s definition but Kurt Vile’s. Clocking in at just shy of an hour, this would be a long full-length record by most any other artist’s yardstick; but for Vile, the collection is an expression of just how deep his well of non-album material runs. Following his 2022 album, (watch my moves), Back to Moon Beach collects new songs, one-offs, covers, and newly reworked versions of beloved tracks. It is presented in three ways: a standard vinyl release with 6 tracks, a digital/CD format with 9 tracks, and a deluxe “direct-to-consumer” double-LP with 10 tracks (which includes the only place non-Amazon users can hear Kurt’s cover of Charli XCX’s “Constant Repeat”).

Next spring, Vile will embark on a headlining North American tour, with stops in Baltimore, Atlanta, New Orleans and more, plus a performance at the Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, TN. A full list of dates are below, and tickets will go on sale Friday, October 17th at 10am local time.
