Owen announces new album The Falls of Sioux, will drop on April 26th on Polyvinyl Record Co. The LP was Co-produced by Sean Carey (Bon Iver) and Zach Hanson (Bon Iver, Low, Waxahatchee) and out As the solo vehicle for the widely influential songwriting of Mike Kinsella (who’s prolific output includes roles along the way in American Football, Cap’n Jazz, LIES and other collaborative ventures). Along with today’s announcement we are also treated to the lead single and video for “Beaucoup”.

The music video was filmed in a private Chicago speakeasy, hidden behind a door inside of a janitor’s closet. “I’m not sure if ‘Beaucoup’ is a lusty Love Song or a lovely Lust Song,” says Kinsella. “Everyone at Weird Life did a great job capturing the seedy side of it, as well as the shimmery / flirty side, visually hitting (and bending) the same note between the notes for the music video.”

As with the past few Owen albums, Kinsella worked with co-producers Sean Carey and Zach Hanson and also brought in Now, Now’s KC Dalager to contribute backing vocals. Russell Durham (Fleet Foxes, Andrew Bird) composed the string arrangements, Corey Bracken (from American Football’s touring band) played synths, and a few other friends stopped through to add upright bass, pedal steel, and various auxiliary contributions.
