Steve Gunn is releasing a new album, Other You, on August 27 via Matador. Now he has shared its third single, “Fulton.” Listen below, followed by his upcoming tour dates.

Gunn had this to say about the song in a press release: “One night the air went dead on 1010 WINS, the local AM news station in NYC I find myself listening to from time to time. Everything stopped for a moment, or at least the radio signal did. The long silence came as a surprise, a gift.”

Gunn has also announced a three-night live residency at Gold Diggers in Los Angeles on September 9, 10, and 11.

When Other You was announced Gunn shared two singles from it: title track “Other You” (via an animated video) and “Reflection.” “Other You” was one of our Songs of the Week.

Other You is the follow-up to 2019’s The Unseen In Between. Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith, Cass McCombs, Kurt Vile) produced the album, which was recorded at his Mant Studios in Los Angeles. The sessions featured longtime friend and collaborator Justin Tripp. The album also features Juliana Barwick, Mary Lattimore, Bridget St. John, Jeff Parker, Bill MacKay, Ben Bertrand, drummer Ryan Sawyer (TV On The Radio, Thurston Moore, Gang Gang Dance), and others.

Gunn had this to say in a previous press release: “I came up with this title when we were recording vocals and Rob was very into harmonies. There was a third part and I just couldn’t find the note. I couldn’t vocalize it. He went in and took my voice and put it into his computer program, then he could playback and ‘sing’ the note with my voice using the computer. And he said, ‘Sing to the other you.’ So I was singing along to myself singing a note I couldn’t sing.”
