I heard this guy several years ago when he opened for Regina Spektor while playing the Murat Egyptian Room in Indianapolis, and I knew someday being on his mailing list was going to pay off. “Magic,” the new single off his upcoming album, Searchlight — the long-awaited sophomore effort due out January 18, 2011, is a real stunner with a video which definitely grabs your attention. Enjoy it below:
The new album, according to an email from the artist, will feature guest input from members of the Strokes, Of Montreal, Robbers on High Street and Little Joy, along with a unnamed duet with Ms. [Regina] Spektor herself . . . something I’m already salivating over, and I haven’t even heard it yet.
I’ll definitely keep up on this guy in the coming months. Who knows, perhaps a full interview with him will grace these Internet pages in time for the new year . . .
