Ariel Pink announces new album, ‘pom pom’

His first release since 2012’s ‘Mature Themes’ (recorded at the time under the name Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, with this being a solo record), ‘pom pom’ is coming out 17th November via 4AD (18th November in North America). 

The record’s lead track, ‘Put Your Number in my Phone’, is streaming now. Sleepy and acoustic-led, it’s one of 17 new songs, with titles including ’Nude Beach A G-Go’ and ‘Exile On Frog Street’.
