Mac DeMarco announces his new, upcoming album, Here Comes the Cowboy today (March 5). To go along with the news, Mac also shares the video for his new single “Nobody,” which stars himself as a lizard/cowboy hybrid smoking a cigar. Here Comes the Cowboy drops May 10 and will be his debut release from his Record Label.

As described by DeMarco, “This one is my cowboy record. Cowboy is a term of endearment to me, I use it often when referring to people in my life. Where I grew up there are many people that sincerely wear cowboy hats and do cowboy activities. These aren’t the people I’m referring to.”

Collaborators on the album include Alec Meen, while Joe Santarpia co-engineered and mixed the record. Here Comes The Cowboy was written, tracked and mixed at DeMarco’s Jizz Jazz Studios in Los Angeles during the first two weeks of January 2019. Nearly every instrument on the album was played by DeMarco, aside from keyboards on select tracks by Meen.

DeMarco will head out on the road for a North American tour this spring. He’ll also join Anderson .Paak for select dates on his upcoming ‘Best Teef in the Game’ tour.

The announcement does come with some controversy. Last year, Mitski released her stellar album titled Be The Cowboy featuring a single called “Nobody.” In a tweet, Mitski acknowledged the similarities, writing, “I’m 100% sure Mac & I just went fishing in the same part of the collective unconscious!” She continued, “Anyway thanks for the laugh, Mac! Happy release!” A rep for Mac DeMarco shared with Pitchfork that Mac didn’t listen to Mitski’s album and only learned about her LP and song title after solidifying his own album title and single.
