Night Surfer, Chuck Prophet’s thirteenth studio album for the acclaimed singer, will be released September 23 on Yep Roc Records. The record is now on preorder at iTunes with an instant download of “Wish Me Luck,” along with four additional instant download tracks rolling out before release for all preorder purchases.
Night Surfer was recorded in Prophet’s hometown of San Francisco at Decibelle Recording Studio, and in Nashville’s Alex the Great with producer Brad Jones (Cotton Mather, Matthew Sweet, Imperial Drag).
Says Prophet: "There are a lot of little stories on Night Surfer. But they seem to add up to one big story. What that overarching story is, I am not really sure, but I’ll know it when it punches me in the face. It’s loosely conceptual but universal all the same, I’d contend. And of course, you’ll find it laced with humor and a persistent anxiety throughout. And while I had originally considered all this leaning toward the dystopian, now I wonder. The future might just save us. But we have to get there first.
Night Surfer is all about a musical path forward, about looking around and imagining where we’ll be in 20 years if we just follow that path."
