Ariel Pink has made an entire album dedicated to ‘lost’ musician Bobby Jameson

And he's introduced it with a brilliant new song

“His book and life resonated with me to such a degree that I felt a need to dedicate my latest record to him,” says Arial Pink introducing his new LP, ‘Dedicated To Bobby Jameson’.

Bobby Jameson was the L.A musician absent from the public eye for 35 years before he reappeared online 10 years ago to write about his tragic life in an autobiography and series of YouTube stories. He passed away in 2015.

His story got into Arial Pink’s head so much his new album isn’t just inspired by him but a total homage.

The follow-up to 2014’s ‘pom pom’, it’ll come out on 15 September via Mexican Summer. In the meantime, he’s shared the beautiful lead track from it ‘Another Weekend’.
