Howdy friends!

Pickles, here, with some news that'll surely change your life. I must ask, who's feeling young now? Whoa there, that's not a yes or no question. It's actually the name of our new album, which will be available everywhere on February 14, 2012!  We recorded Who's Feeling Young Now? this fall at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, TN, with the supremely talented Jacquire King producing and engineering.

Those of you who aren't elite ninja-hackers will have to wait until February to get the full record. However, the opening track, "Movement and Location," is available now as a free download above.  An exclusive album pre-order will launch on our site in January, barring any apocalyptic Y2K scenarios.  More on all of that soon!

The album features a couple covers, namely "Kid A" by the Swedish instrumental legends Radiohead, and "Flippen" by VÄSEN, a band which needs no introduction.   Very excited to announce that two of the songs on the new album are co-writes with our friend Josh Ritter ("Hundred Dollars" and "New York City").  Here's the full track-list:

1. Movement and Location
2. This Girl
3. No Concern of Yours
4. Who’s Feeling Young Now?
5. Clara
6. Flippen
7. Patchwork Girlfriend
8. Hundred Dollars
9. Soon Or Never
10. New York City
11. Kid A
12. Don’t Get Married Without Me

To celebrate the release of Who's Feeling Young Now?, we'll be on tour in the States in February and March.  The newly announced tour begins with two-nights back to back at the Somerville Theatre near Boston on February 23rd and 24th and ends just down the road in Denver at the Bluebird Theatre.  We'll also make stops in Chicago, Minneapolis, Toronto, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and that's not all!  If you act now, special guest Aoife O'Donovan will be joining us, opening the show for this full run of dates. You might know Aoife from her appearance on The Goat Rodeo Sessions,  Thile's critically acclaimed collaboration with Yo-Yo Ma. But it's more likely that you know and love Aoife from her guest vocals on my chart topping banjo record, Beat the Devil and Carry a Rail, which has surprisingly been neck & neck sales-wise with the Goat Rodeo in the Pikelny household. See below for the list of dates and ticket details.  Tickets are selling fast, I'm told, so get your act together this time and avoid living a life filled with regret.

We're also embarking on a European tour next month.  No big deal, it's only been three years since our last shows in Europe. As those of you across the pond might say, "It ain't no thang."  We'll make stops in London for a headline show at Bush Hall. And then we're we'll be opening for Amos Lee in Amsterdam, Paris, and London again. On January 20th, we'll play a set with Nonesuch labelmates the Carolina Chocolate Drops at Celtic Connections in Glasgow, Scotland.  Both shows in Amsterdam are sold out, but otherwise tickets are still available.

Happy Holidays!
