Daniel Johnston
Is And Always Was

Daniel Johnston

In very exciting news, the legendary original lo-fi folk song writer Daniel Johnston has just announced he’s releasing his first album in six years. The notoriously troubled life of the incredible multi-disciplinary artist was documented in the 2006 film The Devil and Daniel Johnston, and it was through this, and chiefly Kurt Cobain’s many public wearings of the “hi, how are you?” Daniel Johnston t-shirt that brought him to a wider audience. Though his starkly simple and heart-warmingly endearing, genuine and honest songs and Daniel’s own reclusiveness earns him attention. He’s been covered by a multitude of equally extraordinary artists including Sonic Youth. Is And Always Was will be out on October 6 on High Wire, ‘Freedom’ is the first single. He’s also doing a tour! Dates below.
