Mac Demarco Says New Album Is Done: 'Salad Days' Follow-up On The Way
Canadian rocker Mac Demarco has announced that the mix on his next album was just completed. He has not released a proper artist album since his 2014 LP Salad Days, so it would be fair to expect this at some point in 2017, though he has not hinted at any firm release date.
In a predictably awkward Instagram post, Demarco is seen in a kitchen somewhere "celebrating" the fact that the new disc has been finished by trying to pop open a bottle of champagne. He does it without any spillage and there might be some new music playing in the background.
In the caption he also includes an homage to Carrie Fisher who died on Tuesday. Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, tragically died the next day.
2016 has been an off year for Mac Demarco in terms of releasing music, but he hasn't been totally quiet since Salad Days. In 2015 he released the mini-LP with a title we can only assume was inspired by DJ Khaled, Another One. Now it appears as though fans won't have to wait too much longer until they get some new music from Mac Demarco.
Mac Demarco has been especially quiet on social media lately, presumably working on finishing the new disc, but he is already lining up some festival gigs for 2017, including one at Primavera Sound. He also has two shows at the O2 Academy in Brixton in May.
Stay tuned for more updates on when the album may drop and any word on how it may be different or similar from past projects.
