Out of basically nowhere, Ariel Pink has announced a new album and dropped its first single, ‘Put Your Number In My Phone’. The album’s maiden song is a rather breezy affair; with airy vocals floating upon a kushy plain of gently twanging guitars, echo on everything, and a mid-song phone conversation fitting to the song’s title.

Also worth noting is that contrary to most of Pink’s recordings, ‘Put Your Number In My Phone’ seems to have actually been mastered by somebody – its squeaky-clean production transcending that of his numerous album-length garage recordings. It’s a promising sign for fans of the musician’s prior pop-rooted ventures.

The album will be titled pom pom, and is set to be released on November 17th through 4AD/Remote Control Records.
