In 2015, Canadian singer-songwriter Mac Demarco released his mini-LP Another One, following up on his proper second album Salad Days. Now DeMarco has announced his first full-length album since 2014’s Salad Days, sharing two songs from the forthcoming release. His new album titled This Old Dog features the two new tracks “My Old Man” and “This Old Dog”. Both tracks are a different rock sound for Mac DeMarco and it looks like he taking a different approach this time around.
In a press release about the album, Mac spoke about the sound of the record.
“The majority of this album is acoustic guitar, synthesizer, some drum machine, and one song is electric guitar. So this is a new thing for me. This is my acoustic album, but it’s not really an acoustic album at all. That’s just what it feels like, mostly. I’m Italian, so I guess this is an Italian rock record.”
The new album is due May 5 via Captured Tracks. Listen to both new track below.
