Cut Worms announces new self-titled album

He also released a new single called ‘Ballad of the Texas King’

Brooklyn-based Cut Worms has announced details of his new self-titled album. The album is due out 21st July via Jagjaguwar. He also released the album’s lead single, ‘The Ballad of the Texas King.’

The last we heard from Cut Worms was with 2020’s LP ‘Nobody Lives Here Anymore’. ‘The Ballad of the Texas King’, he says, acts as “sort of ‘the bridge’ between my last record and the new one. It’s a murder ballad, and as is common in murder ballads, deals with promise and innocence being snuffed out.”

The accompanying video was directed by Clay Tatum, the result of a collaboration: “He and Whitmer Thomas used one of my songs in their recent film The Civil Dead which I very much enjoyed and so I sought them out to do my video. I’m real pleased with how it came out and I think it puts the song in another dimension.”
