“Sunset Boulevard” Jonathan Wilson

Jonathan Wilson’s third album Rare Birds, features collaborations with Father John Misty, Lucius, Laraaji and Lana Del Rey. The full-length was released March 2nd on Bella Union. He returns to the US for a headline tour in September plus a performance at Lincoln Center’s Out Of Doors Festival in Manhattan on July 29th. The performance is free. This show marks a return to the US at the tail end of over 18 months of touring as part of Roger Waters touring band. Last week Jonathan Wilson unveiled his new video, for “Sunset Boulevard”. The clip was directed by Arielle Pytka, sees Wilson navigate the famous Los Angeles’ boulevard at night in one of his own classic cars, a 1975 Porsche 911.

A sought after record producer, North Carolina native Wilson recently produced Father John Misty’s GRAMMY winning Pure Comedy. He also saw widespread acclaim heaped on his production of Karen Elson’s sophomore LP Double Roses and Conor Oberst’s Upside Down Mountain.
