    Listen: Devendra Banhart Releases "It's Not Always Funny" from Upcoming "Vast Ovoid" EP

    Devendra Banhart has released "It's Not Always Funny," the third track from his upcoming four-song EP, Vast Ovoid, due as a limited-edition 12” colored vinyl 45 on July 24. You can hear the track below and download it now when you pre-order the EP, along with the previously released tracks, "Let's See" and "Love Song (Helado Negro Remix)." The EP is a follow-up to Banhart’s latest studio album, Ma, which was released to critical acclaim in September 2019 and includes the original version of "Love Song."

    "While writing this song I was thinking about over-consumption, a kind that goes beyond objects, and starts to pig out on emotions … it's never kindness or joy is it?" Banhart says.

    "I was thinking about the touch of your eyes ... and now that eyes have become our faces, I find going to the supermarket the most intimate experience ... since the lockdown we have been hyper developing the language of looking into each others' eyes ...

    "I was thinking about how they say it’s important to laugh, especially when there's nothing to laugh about, I'm not sure if that’s true but it stuck with me."

    Brad Mehldau's new album, Suite: April 2020, is now available on CD and standard vinyl, following the release of the digital and limited-edition deluxe vinyl editions earlier this year. While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, Mehldau wrote twelve new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in an Amsterdam studio, along with interpretations of three tunes that mean a great deal to him. One thousand numbered and signed copies of the deluxe edition were sold, with a minimum of $90 from each sale donated to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musician’s Emergency Fund. Brad Mehldau has several solo concerts in Europe ahead.
